The fly is one of the biggest menaces to lifehuman and animal.
It is the filthiest of all insectsthe most irritating, also.
The fly filches" more money out of your pocket than all other
pests on your farm put together. It robs you at the milk pail, keeps
your cows scrawny and discontented, takes beef off your steers and
makes your horses cross-tempered, balky and thin.
The fly, with its bedeviling itch, makes life unbearable for your
stock during the summer. The continual biting, tail-lashing and post-
rubbing deprives them of flesh, blood and energy, and then you wonder
why your stock don't pay you bigger dividends.
