Stable Flies, health risks and how to control them

Stable FlyStable Fly Health Risks:

Have you ever been bitten by a fly?  Most poeple think it might be a common house fly but that is a common misconception.  Sable Flies and House Flies look very much alike in color, size, and appearance. Stable flies will feed from almost any warm blooded animal.  Stable flies like to feed in the early morning and late afternoon and can feed more than one time per day.  The flies also prefer to feed outside,  they are rarley found feeding or resting indoors.  Stable Flies love to swarm areas like live stock pens, barns, cattle ranch, and other places where livestock are, feeding on the live stock, causing painfull bites that can irratete the animal and causing the animal to stomp furiously, which can injure the animal.  Stable flies like to feed on the legs and ankles of horses, cattle and humans, but for dogs and swine they like to bite their ears, for easy access to the blood meal.  Stable flies can transmitt blood bourne pathogens, equine infectious anemia and anaplasmosis to humans and animals so control is of the utmost importance.

How to Control Stable Flies:

To control Stable Flies the first thing you need to do is eliminate key breeding factors for the stable flies.  Remove access to food, water, and harborage to the fly.  Wet or damp piles of decaying matter can be a breeding ground for these damaging flies.  Sanatation and thorough handling of animal waste products is a key factor in control as well.  After you have all of that done you can move on to treating the problem with residual pesticides and pheremone stirps.  Suspend Sc is a great product to spray the perimeter down with and lasts around 90 days.  Use Catch Master Gold Sticks to attract flies in and catch them using pheremones.  Use CB-80 Aerosol for a super quick knockdown and kill.
