Amigo® Evolution Fly Sheet


 
Alternative Views:


In our development of the new Evolution Fly Sheet in Aqua/Orange, we carried out extensive research to support our use of this colour combination. Most insects have what are known as ‘compound eyes’, which restrict their ability to see certain colours. In fact, research has shown that most inspects aren’t sensitive to many shades of yellow, orange and red. Most insects can, however, see Ultraviolent lights very clearly. UV pigments in flowers, as opposed to vibrant colours, are what attract insects. You may notice that flies are attracted to certain colours, such as your brightly coloured jacket or car, but the chances are that this object is reflecting light in a way that is attractive to these insects.

We used this research in the development of the Evolution Fly Sheet by choosing colours containing no UV pigments that are known to be difficult for inspects to identify. The pattern we use breaks up the shape of the horse, so insects struggle to identify it as a target and can’t figure out where to land, essentially camouflaging the horse against a wide range of pesky flies and bugs.

Insects respond differently to different colours. Interestingly, most insects cannot perceive the colour orange or aqua, because their vision centres on different sections of the electromagnetic spectrum. This is a natural deterrent in itself. In addition it also features our new disc front closure system (35grm) to create a super lightweight, high tech product.

The knitted polyester net body is soft, absorbent and strong with sun reflecting properties.
