Traps, Tapes, Lights and Zappers


Ok this will be a short post, but once again this will be a shame on me one.  As there is part of this post that brings me great delight when I think about it.  I’m sure you’ll see just exactly which part brings me delight as you read on.

Fly traps TRAP adult flies when they’re most active.  Fly tape traps and KILL flies that get stuck in the tacky tape.  (No this is not the part I like – keep reading.) Spectrum lights repel the insects.  A quick note here:  Yellow spectrum lights draw fewer midges than do blue or green ones do.

Bug Zappers

Flysheets & Masks


Flysheets and masks offer protection from flies and mosquitos by covering the skin and eyes.  Flysheets and masks are helpful if the horse is sensitive to biting insects.  An added bonus is they provide protection to the horse(s) coat and skin from sunbleaching and sunburn.  (Light skinned horses are candidates for that danger zone.)  Flysheets range in price from $40.00 – $175.00 and masks range from $10.00 – $30.00.

In contrast to the benefit
