Abstract:Horse fly populations on cattle were reduced by operation of sticky traps baited with dry ice situated around the periphery of a pasture in which the animals were confined. Fly populations remained relatively low on cattle while traps were in operation, but increased within a few days after trapping was discontinued. Large numbers of flies were collected during the brief trapping periods.
