Horseware Vamoose Fly Rugs
Fly season is upon us. So, if you need a new fly rug this year, an Amigo fly rug may be just what you're looking for. Read on to find out about Horseware Vamoose fly rug technology, utilising advanced colour technology and incredibly powerful insect control to create some of the best fly rugs for horses.
Horseware’s innovative Vamoose technology involves the rugs being treated with an effective and powerful anti-insect technology called Permethrin, a natural fly repellent made from chrysanthemum extract, which is bonded with the fabric of the fly rug. This does not stop insects from initially landing on the rug, but once they have landed on it once, they will not return. It will not adversely affect your horse and will last on the rug for up to 25 washes.
Advanced Colour Technology
Recent studies have discovered that insects can be attracted to certain colours and repelled by others. They are naturally attracted to yellows and whites, but also to large blocks of dark colour resembling hides or rumps. However, colours such as light green or aqua mixed with orange won’t register when seen in the UV spectrum, meaning that flies are deterred from these colour combinations and are less likely to land on fly rugs of this colour.
The latest colour technology of Horseware Fly Rugs paired with the unwavering Vamoose technology has resulted in highly effective fly rugs for horses at the forefront of equine fly repellent control.
