Black Fly Information
Learn everything about the Black Fly.
Black fly, (family Simuliidae), also called buffalo gnat, or turkey gnat, any member of a family of about 1,800 species of small, humpbacked flies in the order Diptera. Black flies are usually black or dark gray, with gauzy wings, stout antennae and legs, and rather short mouthparts that are adapted for sucking blood. Only females bite and are sometimes so abundant that they may kill chickens, birds, and other domestic animals. Some species carry parasites capable of causing onchocerciasis, which may result in blindness or in nodules beneath the skin. The larvae and pupae live in flowing water. When fully developed the adult frees itself from its pupal case, rises to the water surface on a bubble of air, and flies away.
In the spring along the Mississippi River, Cnephia pecuarum is a serious livestock pest. There are records of this species killing horses and mules either with bloodsucking bites or by smothering, which may occur when the animals’ nostrils become blocked by large numbers of black flies. Also appearing in the spring is Simulium meridionale, which attacks bird combs and wattles. Repellents and grease or oil smears are used for protection.
