Image result for fly white backgroundThere are thousands of species of flies worldwide. They are pests because flies are a health risk to humans, pets and livestock. Flies infest your home or business and spread diseases like Salmonella and E coli.

If a small fly problem is left uncontrolled, it has the potential to turn into a serious fly infestation. There are simple ways you can identify the signs of an infestation and reduce the need for fly control. Flies can cause potential harm by spreading diseases and contaminating food.

The life cycle of a fly begins in the egg stage. A female fly is capable of laying up to 150 eggs in a batch. Over a period of a few days, she will produce five or six batches of eggs.

Female flies favor damp, dark surfaces such as compost, manure and other decomposing organic material for egg laying. Fly eggs resemble individual grains of rice.

Within a day, fly eggs hatch into larvae, also known as maggots. Maggots are legless, white insects that feed from the egg-laying site for three to five days. During this time, maggots molt several times. They then choose a dark place to pupate.

Fly pupae are similar in function to butterfly cocoons: their hard, brown shells protect the inactive, developing flies. Over the course of three to six days, the pupae develop legs and wings, ultimately emerging as full-grown flies. Within two to three days, female flies are capable of reproduction.
