If you are looking for the best way to protect your horses and other livestock from biting insects in Aiken, South Carolina and surrounding counties, you've just found it!
Flies have the potential to cause your horse more than discomfort. They spread such diseases as salmonella, vesicular stomatitis, pigeon fever, equine infectious anemia, and influenza. They can cause allergies, dermatitis, and eye ailments, such as conjunctivitis. Constant stomping can lead to loose or lost shoes, and can cause arthritis, ringbone, and other impact-related injuries. Flies can even lead to weightloss, as their constant buzzing, landing, and biting interrupts a horse's grazing time and prevents rest.
One of the most frustrating insects for horse owners is a midge identified as Culicoides. Tiny and prone to swarming, these midges, sometimes called no-see-ums or punkies, can be relentless in their biting, cause extreme itching and can leadto persistent skin wounds.
Mosquitoes transmit diseases, not just to horses but to humans and other animals too, and therefore installing effective control methods around your barn is more than just sensible, it can be lifesaving.
