Research Project: Horn Flies

Horn flies (Haematobia irritans Diptera, Muscidae) are a major pest of livestock and cost the industry close to $1 billion a year in control and production losses. Normal seasonal infestation rates range from 500 to 1,500 flies per animal. Obligate blood feeders, they feed 20 to 30 times a day causing significant damage to host animal. Rangelands grazed by cattle are commonly attacked by pest grasshoppers. Can a grasshopper treatment be also effective against horn flies? Check the award-winning article from UW College of Agriculture and Natural Resources Reflections magazine (2009) by Ph.D. candidate Bryan Stevens to learn more.
