H-Trap Horsefly

Highly effective against horse flies

 

Horse flies are a constant nuisance, particularly during the period May – October in the northern hemisphere. Since they feed on blood, their aggressive stings are very painful not only for animals, such as horses and cows, but also for humans.

 

The new H-trap system effectively controls horse fly numbers, reducing them to an absolute minimum.

 

The H-trap is designed to be placed outdoors, where it works without the need for chemicals or electricity. Extensive independent trials have shown a reduction of 90-95% in horse fly numbers in areas protected by the H-trap

can be realised. 

 

The horse flies are ‘tricked’ into mistaking the centrally placed black ball in the H-trap as a large animal, such as your horse. They are attracted to the ball since it emits heat, exactly like the body of the horse.

 

Once they are positioned on the black ball, they will investigate it and try to sting it. Since they will be unsuccessful in gaining their desired blood feed, they will follow their natural behaviour and fly away. 

 

Horse flies naturally fly upwards, hood system, 

where they are guided into a centrally placed collection bin. This is filled with water and they die in the trap.
