Beating the bite of the yellow fly

Published: Friday, June 6, 2014 at 09:31 AM.

If you keep a trolling trap mounted on your lawnmower or golf cart, you will reduce fly numbers during their regular use.

Deer flies usually fly at heights lower than 10 feet and usually attack the highest available area on the human body first. Walking with a trap mounted on a pole and shaken overhead can be effective.

Tanglefoot can be messy but can be readily removed with hand cleaners that contain citrus extracts. GoJo Natural Orange Pumice Hand Cleaner works very well.
