Most horse owners are probably familiar with this sight: your horse standing in the stall or field, tail twisting, withers twitching, head swinging around to remove a pest fly that is biting, or head shaking to dislodge flies attacking eyes, nose or lips. Fly pests on equine facilities are common, especially during warmer spring and summer months, and while there are a range of control options available, it isn’t always easy to determine what the most effective and safe methods may be.

There are six basic steps to establishing an Integrated Pest Management plan for your horse farm:

  • Identifying your pest(s)
  • Learning their basic biology
  • Establishing tolerance thresholds
  • Monitoring pest populations
  • Implementing prevention, management, and control methods
  • Evaluating the plan

This webinar will review basic identification and biology of the major filth fly pests found in horse facilities; stable flies, house flies, horn flies, and face flies, as well as briefly discussing other biting fly pests like horse flies and mosquitoes.
