Horse, deer flies make life miserable for humans and cows

-A A +A
By Tommy Yankey

Female horse flies and deer flies slash skin with blade-like mouthparts to create small pools of blood from which they feed.

Both groups of these closely related flies can be serious pests of cattle, horses and humans. Horse flies range in size from 3/4 to 1 1/4 inches long.  They usually have clear or solidly colored wings and brightly colored eyes. Deer flies, which are more likely to bite humans, are smaller with dark bands across the wings and colored eyes similar to those of horse flies.
