Hello, a couple of these traps, one for the barn, one for the place the flies like to hang out by the guest house... put it about 15 feet from the screen door... the spray the screen with one of these homemade horse fly repellents. This should cut your horse fly problem down 95% or so. Please do not forget to rate my work, its how I earn a living and does not increase your charges.
