Stable flies are a filth fly with worldwide medical and veterinary importance. They are blood feeders that primarily attack cattle and horses for blood meals, however in the absence of these animal hosts they will bite people and dogs. So, if there is livestock around, stable flies will generally not bite people. Infestations come from outside near where livestock congregate, where they breed in moist organic matter.
