Entomologist Jerry Hogsette sets out stable fly traps and targets for a field study. Stable flies breed in manure, wet straw, and decaying vegetation, and they feed on the blood of livestock and people. Expertise gained in field tests for controlling these flies and other biting insects helps ARS scientists find the best insect controls for the military, farmers, and consumers.
