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.

Sorry, had to answer the phone (darn work) so I just hit post.

The model I have is very similar to this one: LINKY

There are other ideas on this web site: Another Linky
