Warmer weather brings its pros and cons for animals and humans.
In the home and around the yard, the change in climate brings flies and fresh grass.
We recommended that a fly control program be put in place to help avoid the problem, as flies are hidden for a portion of their lifecycle and may not be detectable until it’s too late!
Whilst flies are a pest the real enemy in spring is the higher risk of Laminitis in horses and ponies because of fresh grass.
