Horse flies and deer flies (Diptera: Tabanidae) feeding on cattle in southwestern Quebec



Horse flies and deer flies (Diptera: Tabanidae) feeding on cattle in southwestern Quebec



Canadian Entomologist, 11310: 883-886



Four species of each of the genera Chrysops, Hybomitra and Tabanus were collected while feeding on cattle in southwestern Quebec; T. quinquevittatus accounted for 75% of the tabanids. The more abundant species had a flight period of at least 5 wk. Nearly 90% of the specimens were positive for fructose as determined by the cold anthrone test.
