Those things are NASTY! They're all over the place up here in Ohio, along with horse flies which are bigger and even nastier -- they actually draw blood and I smacked one off a horse once and had blood all over my hands!!! It looked like I had killed something! So gross...

Anyway, I use Pyhrana and it works really well.

Yes, Hoofprints, the horseflies around here are unbelievable! What gets me is how aggressive those buggars are - they will literally "chase" our vehicles up/down the driveway and then buzz you when you try to get out (did some reading and read they are attracted to dark colored moving objects as they are similar to the "prey" animals they feed off of - makes sense). They are just HUGE, though - not at all like the ones we had in Idaho.

Haha YES they DO chase you!!!! It's insane! I'm forever turning around and smashing them into my horse's giant butt on trail rides LOL!!!

Now, you can't just put that out there and not expand on the "how to" part...........
