DON’T LET FLIES SPOIL YOUR SUMMER
Farnam Offers Help With A Free* Fly Control Management Guide
PHOENIX – June 9, 2009 – Why do we fight flies? It is undeniably true that flies are annoying both to us and to our horses. But did you know that flies and other biting insects pose a major health risk to your horse and you. Flies may carry a number of dangerous diseases that become more of a problem as fly populations increase.
Let Farnam show you how to keep your horse comfortable this summer with the new Fly Control Management Guide.
The guide explains several simple, smart strategies for effective fly fighting. To begin with – start your fly control program early to keep fly populations down all season.
Ultimately, the goal is to keep flies off your horse. You can spray it on, roll it on, wipe it on, or use a combination of techniques – this guide discusses several products for use on your horse to aid in accomplishing this goal.
· The guide also introduces information about the only feed-thru fly control product granted reduced-risk status by the EPA that is proven 97-100% effective for inhibiting the development of adult house and stable flies in the manure of treated horses**.
Treating both indoor and outdoor areas will go a long way in keeping the flies away from your horse and you. Do you know all your options? The guide contains information about products you may not be familiar with.
Fly control management tips to keep the area clean and eliminate fly breeding material are also included in the free* guide.
