The Lifecycle Of Flies: Identifying Vulnerable Stages 

Let’s begin by taking a quick look at the lifecycle of the common fly. While this process varies depending on the type of fly in question, it’s generally the same across most species. 

Flies have a four-stage lifecycle – egg, larvae, pupae, and adult. The egg stage begins after reproduction when a female fly finds a place to lay her eggs. Common sites include feces, trash, or decaying animals or plants. These areas provide nutrition for the larvae when they hatch. The larval stage lasts several days to several weeks as they store enough food to last through the pupal stage. Larvae find dark, dry places to pupate; this is the stage where flies develop eyes, wings, and legs, as well as their adult body structure. Fully grown adults emerge ready to reproduce and continue the cycle. 

In the next section, we’ll talk about why it’s so important to get rid of flies in the house.

Confronting Flies In The House: Understanding The Risks

Having flies in your home can lead to a lot of problems. Flies are among the most unsanitary insect pests on the planet. They defecate almost constantly, contaminating any surface they touch. They also spread germs picked up from feces, trash, and decaying organic matter, which makes up a large portion of their diet. Flies are known to spread more than 100 different pathogens, including tuberculosis and typhoid. 

Now that you know a bit more about the dangers of flies, let’s discuss how to keep flies out of your house.
