We’re emerging from a wet winter, so climate experts are predicting that we’re about to experience one of the worst fly seasons in years. To learn how you can best protect your horses against pests, read on.

While horses and stables are prime breeding grounds for flies and other pests, you can certainly lessen their effect. Early spring is the best time to start, beginning with a thorough stable cleaning. (See top stable cleaning supplies here) Then, establish a system for maintaining its cleanliness throughout the year. Removing manure and garbage daily (or more often, if possible) is the best way to keep the fly population down; keeping the stable dry by replacing any damp bedding and hay will also be a good deterrent. Feed-through fly control supplements work to break the life cycle of the fly in manure, and are highly recommended for horses’ diets.

You’ll want to extend the protection as far from the stable as you can, so make sure your horses have the right sizes and combinations of fly masks, fly sheets, fly boots, and leg wraps. In addition to keeping them comfortable, these accessories also help protect against injury. Liquid repellents, in wipe-on and spray form, are also effective, but will need to be reapplied often.
