Surviving Horse Flies: A Product Guide for Horse Owners - Horse Cleaning Masters Of Shampoos ™

Horse owners know all too well the irritation and potential harm horse flies can cause to their beloved equines. These pests are not only a nuisance but can also transmit diseases and cause severe discomfort for horses. Fortunately, with the right tools and techniques, you can effectively keep these flies at bay.

In this post, we'll discuss two highly recommended products that can help you and your horse enjoy a more comfortable summer.

Kerbl Trap-Flies TaonX Eco

Kerbl Horse Fly Trap - TaonX Eco

Our first recommendation is the Kerbl Trap-Flies TaonX Eco, a horsefly trap that is touted to reduce the number of horseflies in the immediate vicinity by up to 95%​​. This trap works by simulating a target object for the horsefly to suck blood out of, but once the insect makes a failed attempt at drawing blood, it takes off vertically and ends up in the trap's catching container​.

The TaonX Eco is easy to assemble, robust, and comes with a 2-year guarantee for metallic parts​​. The device can be used in a variety of locations where horseflies are a nuisance, including horse paddocks, livestock stables, riding schools, golf courses, gardens, parks, and even along lakes and river banks​​

The product is also eco-friendly and 100% non-toxic, making it a great choice for those seeking an environmentally friendly option.

There are two versions of this product, one with a floor stand included and one that can be hung from a link chain or wall bracket​.

Bug Ball Starter Kit

Bug Ball Horse Fly Trap

Next on our list is the Bug Ball Starter Kit, a unique and effective solution to combat not only horse flies but also yellow flies, deer flies, greenhead flies, and other biting insects​​.

Each kit includes two Bug Balls made from heavy-duty, weather-resistant black PVC, a can of Catch Em' sticky coating, and an inflation needle. The Bug Ball works in various environments, including greenhouses, pool areas, backyards, gardens, animal stables or shelters, orchards, barns, and cabins​​.

The Bug Ball is easy to set up in three simple steps: inflate the ball until firm (around 15 inches), hang it from a tree, pole, or shepherd's hook 4-5 feet off the ground in the sun adjacent to the shade, and then apply the Catch Em' liquid thoroughly all over the ball's surface​​.

The Catch Em' sticky coating is an odorless, eco-friendly bug killer that requires no pesticides or electricity and is safe to use around children and pets​.

With these two products, you can significantly reduce the number of horse flies and other biting insects in your horse's environment, providing them with a more comfortable and safer space. Remember, a happier horse leads to a happier owner.

Surviving horse flies is no easy task, but with the right tools, it's more than possible 🙂
