those pesky deer flies!

This morning on the Phenology Show, John Latimer talked about a homemade kind of remedy for getting rid of deer flies. Apparently, deer flies are attracted to the color blue - so a fella out there in Internets-land somewhere came up with the idea of putting a blue dixie cup on the top of his hardhat refurbished in blue plastic and covered in tanglefoot - a sticky product that they put on flypaper.

Other people have put jerry-rigged blue sticky things on sticks to attract the pesky flies and mounted them on their cars and lawn mowers.
What deer or horse fly remedies do you have?
