Synopsis

A Crash Course on How to Get Rid of Black Flies

Black flies are small, dark flies with a humped back that can give a painful bite. Unlike a mosquito (which  sucks up blood through a proboscis), black flies slash the skin and lap up the pooled blood.  Their  larvae (left) and pupae (below) usually attach themselves to rocks and vegetation in flowing streams.  They belong in the order Diptera (Flies), to the family Simuliidae .

Black flies are feared in many regions because of the relentless and intolerable nature of their attacks, not only on man, but on livestock, poultry, and wildlife. Attacks can not only provoke severe reactions in many bitten individuals, but often have serious social and economic effects.
