    [RC] Fly control - Lif Strand

    OK gang, here's one for the experts: On another list, someone has been advised to coat her senior citizen's horse's legs with used motor oil as fly control. She says people also have used diesel fuel on cattle as fly control "for years". I wouldn't be putting either on my critters, but not because I have any health knowledge about it. So I want to know if there are reasons for or against using used motor oil or diesel fuel for fly control? Would this be harmful to equines? My gut instinct is it would be toxic but that's not science. It sure would be smelly and ugly!
