The colour of construction
I used to build once. In those days timber was timber coloured and the ground was poisoned with stuff that chased termites away and kept them away. Sadly one day someone drew a link between those poisons and people falling down dead and a new set of materials had to be devised.
Now the timber is treated against attack with more innocuous chemicals, and dyed so there can be no mistake about what has been dunked in which.
It makes for a colourful life on a construction site though.
