Caption: Stable fly (Stomoxys calcitrans). This insect uses its proboscis to pierce the skin and suck the blood of domestic animals. Female flies require a blood meal to reproduce. S. calcitrans gathers in swarms that can stress cows so much that their milk yield is reduced. It is also a vector of diseases, for example swamp fever, anthrax and brucellosis.
