horsefly trap - Gallagher

Many horses, ponies and cows are bothered by horseflies, wasps and other insects during the summer. These insects are especially active in places such as swimming pools, gardens, patios, golf courses and stables in the period from May to September. The stings of aggressive horseflies and wasps are just as painful to animals such as horses as they are to people. What you need to get rid of these horseflies and wasps is a horsefly trap. This horsefly trap, also known as a wasp trap, catches large numbers of flies and other insects. 

Where should I place my horsefly trap?

The position of the trap is very important. Horseflies and wasps like humid areas in the grass or close to water. It is important to make sure that horses or other animals cannot get to the horsefly traps. They can however simply be placed around the riding arena or the pasture.

How does the horsefly trap work?

A horsefly trap takes the form of a black ball that is heated by the sun and releases heat. The ball swings slowly back and forth in the wind and is taken for an animal by the horsefly, which tries to sting it. But horseflies are unable to penetrate the ball with their stings, which dazes them and causes them to fly upwards. Horseflies and wasps can only fly upwards, which means that they are caught in the trap container.
