Just planning ahead for next summer and was wondering if anyone has tried fly predators? I saw them in my dover catalog and they are like miliature flies that kill your everyday barn fly? And if so do they work? I have a farm where we have cattle also so the flies are REALLY bad in the summer. Two days ago I was outside repairing the fence and they were everywhere. Trying to fly into my ears...trying to go into my mouth...nose etc. . . If anyone has tried them please let me know ur results! Thanks for taking the time to read this!
Awesome! I thought they would be a good idea and possibly help the poor cattle out too....I don't know how cattle don't end up freaking the heck out with how bad they are lol thought it would be a good investment so I don't lose it myself some people say you are not a true horse person till the flies don't bother you...... I think that's kinda dumb necause I'm. Just easily irritable with flies. Especially when you end up eating a few. Icky.thanks :)
I think with all the money I saved on fly spray using them all these years they really cost me nothing.
Raisin, I think that the cows will bump your quantity required up very quickly. Go to the Spalding web site and fill in the question thingy and it will tell you exactly what they recommend for you and I believe how much it will cost.
The cowa are not mine so I'm thinking about talking to the man that owns them and see if he will pay for some of it. Cause the reason the flies are so bad is mainly because of the cattle. I will have to talk to him cause there are like 30 head of cattle and 5 horses. This summer I was going through about 5 bottles of fly spray a week. Spendy.
