Horse Fly Rugs & Masks

Flies represent a major nuisance for horses. More importantly, the flies carry diseases which could threaten the health of your horse. Prevention is a far better option than cure with flies and so it is vital to provide your horse with adequate fly protection. Fly rugs and fly masks are important additions to your horse’s wardrobe.

Horseflies, Blowflies and Screwworms

Bites from horseflies are incredibly painful as you probably know. These aggressive insects actually tear flesh in order to feed on the horse’s blood. The flies may be carrying a variety of equine infections including infectious anaemia, anthrax and contagious conjunctivitis. Their bites can also cause dermatitis, skin eruptions, lesions, abrasions, scabbing, fungal diseases and hair loss.

The open wounds which result from the bites provide the ideal places for blowflies and screwworms to lay their eggs. When the eggs hatch, the larvae feed on your horse’s bodily tissues and this situation can be deadly.

Botflies and Gnats

Horses are favoured by botflies as hosts for their eggs which they will lay in areas that horses are able to reach with their mouths. Horses can then ingest the eggs and/or larvae which attach themselves to the horses’ stomach walls. Gnat bites cause horses to toss their heads and to rub the area which has been bitten. The bites contain a toxin which can cause cardiac arrest or respiratory depression in extreme cases.

Houseflies

Flies don’t have to bite to be a problem. Houseflies don’t bite but are irritants and may spread disease. They will feed on a horse’s eyes, nose and mouth secretions and can infect the horse with any diseases that they might be carrying in the process.
