VOSS.farming "Tabanus-Trap Edge" Horsefly Trap

An affordable alternative to the proven Tabanus Trap! With standard auger, EasyClean function, reinforced funnel and big bait ball. Captures reliably 95% of all horseflies over 2.5 acres.

As soon as it gets warm outside all horse, cattle and donkey owners have the same problem – horseflies. Horseflies are the largest type of gadfly and most feared by those with allergies to their bites, particularly by horse and cattle owners. The 2 cm long insect inflicts painful wounds, carries the EIA virus, Lyme disease and can result in allergic reactions in humans and animals.

How does the VOSS.farming "Edge" horsefly trap work?

The principle of the horsefly trap is simple: a black ball looks like the rear of an animal. Horseflies are only able to detect differences between light and dark. The black ball and the white transparent funnel are the ideal contrast to confuse the insect. The black ball warms up as it hangs in the sun. The flies then mistake this for a warm-blooded living creature. They attempt to bite the ball, but fail. Their poor ability for precision flying means that they will only fly off in an upwards direction. However, the funnel and trap container is waiting for them there. The insect can then no longer escape and fly away, keeping people and animals free from bother.

This pricniple has been tested over decades and is 100% working. The trap can catch more than 95% of all horseflies in an area of 2.5 acres and is environmentally friendly.

Here is what you need to know:

  • Horse flies usually gather in large numbers near bodies of water (lakes, rivers, ponds, puddles, marshes, etc.).
  • Before you set up the trap, you should determine the flight paths used by the horse flies to and from the bodies of water.
  • Once you have located the flight paths, place the trap/s as close to them as possible.
  • The capture containers must be emptied daily or weekly depending on the capture rate.
  • Make sure the trap is set up in time for the emergence of female horse flies, which occurs from April onwards. This is the only way to get rid of annoying horse flies.
  • You should also place a couple of drops of detergent into the water-filled capture container. In adding this, the surface tension of the water is decreased and is then no longer sufficient to carry the insect. This causes the horse flies to drown.

Set up in the paddock where my horse was being pestered to death by horse flies.\nGood quality and well made. So far we have only caught six horse flies, but that’s six of the nasty little bastards which won’t bite me or the horse in the future.\nIt is late in the season and next year I will reposition closer to the local watercourse.
