Blood in humans contains haemoglobin, a red protein responsible for transporting oxygen around our bodies. Insects don't have haemoglobin as their bodies don’t transport gases through their blood, instead they have lots of holes along their bodies called spiracles. These lead to a network of tubes that carry the oxygen around their bodies, this system also removes unwanted carbon dioxide.
The colour of their blood or hemolymph is likely to be determined by the plants that they have consumed, ranging from grey, to green to yellow and even orange shades.
Some insects and spiders blood is called hemocyanin, this contains copper and when exposed the the air (ie splatted on your car) it turns to a bluish colour.
Sometimes you may see some red splatter from a fly, its not blood from another animal that they have consumed, but the red pigment from their eyes!
As pretty as all these colours sound, splatted bugs can be a nightmare to remove from your paintwork, especially if left to bake on. Use our Citrus Pre-Wash spray to dissolve them and remove them safely.
