General Aspects


Veterinary and Medical Importance

Blood loss and annoyance during the painful feeding of the stable fly are influencing especially the food uptake of the host animals and are thus the most important negative effects, causing up to 15% weight loss and possibly high reduction in milk production in the case of high fly density. Furthermore the stable flies can also act as mechanical vectors of pathogens, such as Trypanosoma evansi.
