What’s bugging your horse? Managing insect pests on equine farms
Elissa Ballman, UMaine Senior Research Associate & PhD student

Stable flies, house flies, ticks, and midges are just some of the pests horses encounter on our farms. Not all flies are created equally, or are managed equally. Learn how to identify which pests you are dealing with, when they are active, and integrated pest management tactics you can use to keep your horses happy and healthy. Also, get a sneak peak at the current stable fly research happening in Maine.

For more information or a reasonable accommodation, please contact Rachel White at rachel@maine.edu.
