Do horse flies bite people?

Horse flies and deer flies (which also like horses) will sometimes bite people - in fact my most embarrassing equestrian injury was a horse fly bite which got infected. Horse fly bites are actually quite prone to infection and unlike mosquitoes they can get you through clothing. The best prevention is fly repellent. Generally, horse flies won't bite people when there are horses available, though.
