Buffalo fly seem to becoming a bigger problem each year. They will continue to persist until the cooler months. Buffalo fly are a huge problem and cost the beef and dairy industries millions of dollars in lost production each year. Each fly feeds up to 20 times a day by puncturing the skin and taking blood. Cattle left untreated may end up with skin lesions and the flies tend to cause the cattle discomfort and cattle may end up losing condition due to stress. Main areas affected seem to be contained to around the eyes, neck and brisket. Some breeds are more susceptible than others.
