Bot Fly Eggs

Postby turn&burn92 » Tue Jan 01, 2008 5:35 pm

Okay, how on earth do you get those little bot fly eggs off your horse? My horse has them and they are driving me nuts. He doesn't have that many but I can't stand to look at them. He is sorrel so they are really easy to see and they are buggin the heck outa me. I have tried using a razor and shaving with the hair and I had no luck with that. I have seen the brushes and I barrowed one but it didn't really work as well as they say it does. Any home remedies or other ideas on how to get rid of the eggs would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have never tried a bot egg knife, but my friend uses them and she says they work really good if they are sharp. She said if they get dull they don't work as well.
