Fly Masks & Veils

Adult horse flies feed on nectar and plants. In addition to this, females of most species require a blood meal before they are able to reproduce effectively. They are attracted to a potential victim by its movement, its warmth, its surface texture and the carbon dioxide it breathes out. The flies mainly choose large mammals such as cattle, horses, and deer, but few are species specific. Because their bite is irritating to the victim, they are often brushed off, and may have to visit multiple hosts in order to obtain sufficient blood. This behaviour means that they may carry disease-causing organisms from one host to another.
