Why do we fight flies? It is undeniably true that flies are annoying both to us and to our horses. But did you know that flies and other biting insects pose a major health risk to your horse and you. Flies may carry a number of dangerous diseases that become more of a problem as fly populations increase. 

Let Farnam show you how to keep your horse comfortable this summer with the new Fly Control Management Guide. 

The guide explains several simple, smart strategies for effective fly fighting. To begin with, start a fly control program early to keep fly populations down all season.

Ultimately, the goal is to keep flies off your horse. You can spray it on, roll it on, wipe it on, or use a combination of techniques – this guide discusses several products for use on your horse to aid in accomplishing this goal.

The guide also introduces information about the only feed-through fly control product granted reduced-risk status by the EPA that is proven 97-100 percent effective for inhibiting the development of adult house and stable flies in the manure of treated horses.

Treating both indoor and outdoor areas will go a long way in keeping the flies away from your horse and you. Do you know all your options? The guide contains information about products you may not be familiar with. 

Fly-control management tips to keep the area clean and eliminate fly-breeding material are also included in the free guide.

“Horse owners have trusted Farnam fly control products for more than 50 years to help protect their horses from flies, gnats, mosquitoes and ticks,” said Martha Lefebvre, marketing manager, Farnam Horse Products. “Farnam is known for providing effective fly control that helps eliminate flies on all fronts and at all stages of the fly life cycle.
