In the development of the Evolution Fly Sheet in Aqua/Orange, we carried out extensive research to support the use of this color combination. Most insects have what are known as compound eyes which restrict their ability to see certain colors. Most insects can, however, see Ultraviolet lights very clearly. It is the UV pigments in flowers, as opposed to the vibrant colors, that attract insects.
We used this research in the development of the Evolution Fly Sheet by choosing colors containing no UV pigments and that are known to be difficult for insects 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.
Features include a knitted polyester net body that is soft, absorbent, and strong with sun reflecting properties. Other attributes are a supersized tail flap with silky lining, leg arches, shoulder and mane lining, belly flap with Velcro closures for full belly coverage, three straight surcingles, and fillet string. In addition, it also features our new disc front closure system (35grm) to create a super lightweight, high tech product.
