So... What's a Fly?
Flies are most commonly recognized in their adult stage. The adults have two wings and measure about 1/4" in length.
Larvae of houseflies are maggots that feed on rotting matter.
Reproduction Patterns of Flies
The female housefly lays about 50 to 100 eggs at one time in organic debris. The eggs will hatch into maggots in a mere 12 hours after being deposited. These maggots will feed on the organic debris and then each will build a cocoon where it will pupate and turn into an adult housefly.
It's a good thing that flies can only survive for about two to three weeks at most, because during that time, a female can lay over 500 eggs. If even half of those eggs are females, and each of those females can produce 500 eggs, and so forth, it is no wonder flies are found in endless numbers!
Flies can be found throughout the world. Due to all of the organic material waste we produce, flies are attracted to our dwellings, outdoor buildings, yards, and just about any other area we humans can be found! These insects carry diseases; therefore, it is imperative that we control these insect pests to the best of our abilities. You can eliminate flies by using Safer® Brand Flying Insect Killer
