Horse Fly Health Concerns

When it comes to dealing with horse flies, the top health concern is disease transmittal. Since a horsefly feasts on the blood of its victims, it can quickly transmit diseases. Aside from the disease concerns, horse flies can also cause serious pain. A small group of horse flies can bite a human enough times to force him or her back into their home. It's best to have professionals remove horsefly infestations.
