Monzon and Schuster (2013) reported the presence of biting tabanid
flies of the genera Tabanus and Chlorotabanus in the MBR.
Whatever the mechanism (a more competent immune system or a lower probability of encountering an infected tabanid
fly), dominant males do exhibit a lower prevalence of infection.
While the distribution of tsetse flies in Africa is well known, the researchers did not have maps of tabanids
(horseflies, deer flies).
vectors of the arterial nematode, Elaeophora schneideri, in southwestern Montana.
Arthropods such as hard ticks, tabanid
flies, mosquitoes, and fleas are important vectors of infection among vertebrates.
While the tabanid
flies we captured at one site in the northern mountains clearly act as pollinators, they do not have sufficiently long proboscides to account for the evolution of spurs up to 72 mm in length in some populations in this region.
Trypanosomiasis was originally an enzootic disease circulating in wild animals such as mammals and birds and spread by biting tabanid

Once a month, tabanid
collection on a horse was conducted continually from 9:00 a.m to sunset in the ecotone habitat of each farm, by two observers with the aid of hand nets (20 cm diameter and 30 cm deep, 75 cm handle length).

Field isolates from tabanid
fly guts were screened, cloned by multiple liquid dilution cloning and/or sero-cloned, re-screened, and deformation tested to produce serological profiles.
females ingest blood by lacerating the skin with serrated mouthparts and lapping up the pooled blood, which can cause significant irritation to the host.
