gadfly (Oestrus ovis) deposits its young in the nostrils of sheep, and the larv develop in the frontal sinuses. The common species which infests cattle (Hypoderma bovis) deposits its eggs upon or in the skin where the larv or bots live and produce sores called wormels. The
gadflies of the horse produce the intestinal parasites called bots. See Botfly, and Bots. The true horseflies are often erroneously called gadflies, and the true
gadflies are sometimes incorrectly called
(Zol.), one of several small petrels of the genus Oestrelata.
