    Take it Poptart, and get some "between the ears" shots for the other thread.

    Hidee ho! **waving** I made it! WHEW!
    My desktop computer tried to die yesterday, and I've spent the morning breathing life back into it! Made a bunch of backup disks right away too...just in case....
    Everything here is moving, but it's slo, slo, SLOW. May still run in and get a laptop...for back up.
    Ron's been laughing at me because I've been running around with holes in my shorts. Don't know why, but I always seem to catch the left pocket on the ladder. Then....rrrrriiiiiiippppp! I noticed this morning that even my 'good' shorts have a rip in em. Sheesh.
    Thanks for the coffee Dash! Lord knows, it was badly needed this morning!

    Its a Twizzlers and Diet Coke day for me. Had it for breakfast and now lunch. That's got to be bad for me, ya think?
    I just went out to let the girlies out to pasure and spread my fly predators. I came around the corner of the barn and heard this bang bang snarrrffle noise. All 4 horses where in the feed barn. Fras and Shiloh had their head in the horse feed, Saro had her head in the chicken feed and Vida was into the horse cookies/ cracked corn bin. I got them all run out, checked everyone for injuries and sent them out to the pasture. Guess I'll spend the rest of the day checking them for tummy upsets. Geesh, silly horses :roll:

    I get a brochure from them every spring and keep saying I'm going to try them, but haven't yet. Do they work?

    Poptart!

    Yes they do. I still see flys but not near as many as there would be without the predators. They don't do anything for the big giant nasty horse flys though
    Between my chickens dogs and horses I would be in a fly storm without them

    Just a for instance when we checked the girls they each had maybe 4-5 flys on them. Without they would be covered and have them all over their poor faces.

    What about those nasty biting green-headed flies. Do the predators help with them? Just wondering.
    I *thought* I was going to start using them this year, and even ordered them....(an paid for them) but...I only got a brochure....
    I really should look into that. But...for some reason...just can't make myself hunt up the old paperwork...

    They help with any type of fly that comes from horse poop or rotting stuff.
    I'm not sure where the green headed beggers you asked about come from. I checked my bug book and the 2 green head/body ones I found are the American horse fly and the green bottle fly.
    Predators wouldn't help with the horse flys since they breed in wet areas laying eggs on plants that overhang water. The bottle fly breeds in poo so it would help with them.
    I also keep fly traps up all year to help with the flys that the predators don't kill. The horse flys are tricky *******s though and seem to avoid the traps.
    I remember before I started using them this time of year the horses faces would be plagued by flys. Now there is just an occasional one or two. Now if I could just get enough to do the whole county, I wouldn't have to buy fly spray for trail riding
