Yeah my celi is white that there are always a ton of flies on my car.

Also I've been having a huge problem with birds...not them crapping on it but them flying into it!! The first day I got my car a birs flew into it when I was driving it. It's happened a couple other times too. They just won't get out of the way!!

This is the actual reason why they flock to yellow. Certain bees and other insects see a different color spectrum than the human eye sees. Instead of the usualy ROYGBIV wavelengths that we can only see, certain insects can see wavelengths with a higher frequency (UV rays), and thus enables them to find their food. As a result, they can't see most of our color spectrum (red, orange, YELLOW, green) but their eyes pick up the UV light and they zoom in checking to see if it's food.
