- One of our good friends from Belgium who works on forest flies finds dozens of new species each time he goes in.
- There are also no or few horsefly's during these seasons and we don't see the biting forest flies which we do have during the summer weeks.
- This brings the moot question to the fore: who else were at fault, besides the obvious parasites and the forest flies which spread the disease?
