Whilst through ground-breaking research it has been discovered that Horse Flies dislike stripes, hence the Zebra Print. The Bucas Buzz-Off Fly Mask blocks even the smallest of insects and reduces the effects of ultraviolet radiation.

The Bucas Buzz-Off Fly Mask blocks even the smallest of insects and reduces the effects of ultraviolet radiation. The ventilated Cool fine mesh fabric keeps your horse cool and comfortable. The Bucas Buzz-Off Fly Mask offers the ultimate protection against UV. Teamed with the Buzz-Off Zebra Fly Rug for a formidable opponent against insects and UV rays.

The reason for the Zebra Print...

Dress your horse up like a zebra this summer and keep him fly free. Following trials in Hungary and Sweden, researchers have discovered that horse flies hate stripes, which is the reason behind Bucas’ latest fly rug design.

Pallets containing vegetable oil were painted different patterns of black and white stripes or all black or all white. These pallets were then placed in a fly-infested field and results showed that there were far more flies in the black painted pallets, fewer in the white but the fewest flies of all were found in the pallets painted with very thin black and white stripes.

Afterwards, researchers carried out a similar trial on model horses covered in glue. At the end of 59 days, the black horse had caught 562 flies, the brown one 334, the white one 22 and the zebra patterned horse had just 8! It is thought that the flies find the stripes confusing and as a result, they tend to steer clear.

Based on this research, Bucas has developed a first of its kind fly rug with thin zebra-like stripes, to keep horses free from the stresses of summer flies for good. This unique zebra fly rug, which is the same design as the Bucas standard Buzz-Off fly rug, has shoulder darts for extra room and movement, a stitched on neck, which overlaps in front to ensure no flies can get in, a belly flap for further protection and it’s made from a fine mesh fabric ensuring that even the smallest of flies won’t have access to your horse. What’s more, there’s the option of a matching fly mask, too.

Without a doubt, this clever new Bucas zebra patterned fly rug, which offers added UV protection, is definitely a product your horse would want you to buy.
