Deer fly question

Deer fly population cattle population Are deerfly populations affected by the presence or absence of cattle? Deer flies are breeding in wetland or in chronic pools of water. They do go after cattle, and blood meals guarantee reproduction of the species. The eggs are laid on grasses or other plant life in these areas. The newly hatched larvae drop down into the water where the dig down, or in mud and remain there during their developmental time. They feed on organic substances, as well as snails or other available small aquatic life. Their cycle from egg to adult may be as short as several months or as long as two years. They remain a pest to humans during June and July, and then they are gone. We know of no way to eliminate them short of draining marshlands. Repellants help.
