Bite-Lite® Gets Spot on Horse Radio Station

The Horse Radio Network is the “Voice of the Horse World” and featured Bite-Lite® in its Stable Scoop Radio Show on February 13, 2015.   Our own Director of Sales Gail Bedoukian was interviewed by Host Glenn “the Geek” during an online podcast called the Metal Horses and Helping the Mustangs (Episode 339). As the show’s name suggests, Glenn scopes out “unique, different products” to introduce on one of his eight shows; he discovered our new professional horsefly control system called the H-trap set up at the AETA (American Equestrian Trade Association) show.   He said our trap was not something he expected to see at the show! If you want to listen to the hour long show, check out Bite-Lite in the segment Tack and Habit “fights the bugs with Bite-Lite,” which comes around the 54th minute mark.

The Horse Radio Network is the home for all things equine related.    Fun is the key to network. Its purported goal with its eight shows “is to help your chores go a little faster and to put a smile on your face!”   From its website’s “About” tab: “We believe that people own horses for fun and entertainment. Why else would you put up with the early morning feedings, stall cleaning, vet bills, long trips to shows,  empty bank accounts and everything else that goes with being a horse owner.   Our goal with these shows is to help your chores go a little faster and to put a smile on your face!”

Horse Radio Network is stationed in Ocala, Florida.   Besides Stable Scoop, which was Glenn’s first show when he founded the network in 2008, you can listen to other fun shows that include: Driving Radio Show, Horses in the Morning, Horse Tip Daily, and Equestrian Legends.

H-Trap Tops 2 Others in Horse Fly Trap (2014) Study in Florida

Comparison of Adult Tabanidae (Horse fly) Collections at a Wildlife Refuge Near a Horse Boarding Facility in Cedar Key, Florida; 2014.

The USDA conducted testing in the summer of 2014, comparing horse fly collections from two commercial traps, the H-Trap and Horse Pal, and one standard surveillance trap, the NZI,  in a wildlife refuge that was near a horse boarding farm in Cedar Key, Florida. Researchers set up these three different style traps, per each manufacturer’s instructions, using no added attractants. On the first day, the H-Trap, Horse Pal, and NZI traps were placed in one of three sites, and then rotated 24 hours later. This allowed all three traps to be tested at each site. Three repetitions were conducted, and the total number of Tabanids collected over time was recorded. The total number of horse flies collected was 3483; of that number, more than half (57.5%) were collected by the H-trap alone!
