The horn fly, Haematobia irritans irritans(Linnaeus), is one of the most economically important pests of cattle worldwide. 1998, DeRouen et al. In both cases reproduction occurs as a single investment of energy in offspring, with no future chance for investment in reproduction. having body symmetry such that the animal can be divided in one plane into two mirror-image halves. (1986) reported that a commercial bolus formulation (10% diflubenzuron) used in manure samples from treated animalswas able to prevent development of horn fly larvae (Haematobia irritans) (14 weeks of protection), face fly larvae (Musca autumnalis) (17 weeks of inhibition), along with immature stages of stable flies (Stomoxys calcitrans) and house flies (Musca domestica). Adults look similar to house flies ( Musca domestica ), but are about half the size and have piercing mouthparts to feed on the blood of cattle.

One method consisted of periodically counting the number of flies on 5 red, 5 white, and 5 black heifers confined in an isolated pasture. It is a telmophage, using its labella to pierce the skin of a cow, so that the fly may suck up the blood that flows into the wound. In colder climates, however, the life cycle of H. irritans may take up to three weeks for completion. The Horn fly is an ectoparasite that feeds on blood, preferably and reproduces in cattle stools.
