#1874: Insectistripes

It seems that vertical stripes may make the zebra hard for parasitic flies to see.

Since I suffer greatly from insect bites, today’s invention is a travel suit, made in a vertically-striped pattern -at a similar spatial frequency to that of a zebra’s coat.

This might be enough to distract the attention of a variety of biting insects, but the suit would also be made to be reversible so that the inside would have horizontal stripes that could be worn on the outside when sleeping.
