I wasn't sure whether this should be here or in the health section. I have heard of and read a bit about but never actually seen in person before botflies. From what I know you are meant to kind of scrap the eggs off. I think I found some eggs on Apaches legs this afternoon. I could be wrong though as I have never really seen them before. I think if I remember correctly you try to prevent them by worming and using fly spray stuff. Sorry for any ignorance. I was just looking for tips owith them. Thanks
Thanks guys. I got them off yesterday afternoon. I do regulary worm my horses and put a sort of horsey insect repellent on them. I have never had a problem with them before, that is just all I could put the little yellow spots down to when I saw them.
Yea, they are particularly rampant in aus this year.
Our local horse shop said they have never had to order in so many bot knives - all the staff are having issues with them too as they just seem to be swarming in.
We've been keeping them off with daily running over with the bot knife, but they ARE being a bigger pest than I have EVER remembered!
