i ddin't see 1 horse/ deer fly where I lived before.. now that I moved they are here and they are terrible little sh!ts! they don't move off the cows sucking all that blood.. you kill one by hand and they have a ton of blood in them.

Thanks, the pour-on doesn't seem to phase them.

You can't use the same insecticide pour year after year they become immune.
You have to use a multiple prong approach on fly management from rubs,IGR, sprays or pour on.
The type of fly your fighting is important as well, house,horn or heel knowing their breeding cycle, environment they prefer to fight the battle. You can spend a ton on chemicals that are not particularly effective on the enemy.

Thanks, thinking about installing a rub. My husband is thinking about shooting these deerflies with my 22 loaded with birdshot :mrgreen:
