Japanese Scientists Painted Cows to Resemble Zebras and Prevent Biting Flies

Japanese Scientists Painted Cows to Resemble Zebras and Prevent Biting Flies

The study shows that there might be a better option than the traditional means of repelling flies from livestock. The farming industry currently largely relies on using pesticides on animals to fight the problem.

"This work provides an alternative to the use of conventional pesticides for mitigating biting fly attacks on livestock that improves animal welfare and human health, in addition to helping resolve the problem of pesticide resistance in the environment," the study stated.

A small amount of paint to confuse the little flying pests is all it takes to fix this problem.
