Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Hi.We are putting day sheets on our horses when stabled at night. From 16:00 to 10:00 the next morning when they go out. Is this in ANY way effective?

I would think that this is an excellent additional prevention method and would recommend to any horse owner who has the opportunity. Any barrier that you can put between the horse and midge will improve the chances of not getting infected with AHS virus.
