(CNN) – It’s probably not a practical solution, but painting cows to look like zebras would protect them from a lot of fly bites.

Japanese researchers took six cows with dark coats and gave them each black-and-white stripes, black stripes and no stripes.

With each paint job (or lack of one), they counted the number of times the cows reacted to fly bites during a 30-minute period.

When painted black and white, the cows suffered nearly 50% fewer bites, researchers found.
