house flies pest control
House flies are incredibly irritating household pests. If you have ever walked into a room and seen a fly buzzing about, you know how quickly they can turn an enjoyable situation into an annoying one. Not only are they annoying and unsightly, but they can also carry diseases, contaminate food, and irritate occupants of your building.
Life cycle of a housefly
A fly goes through four stages of development: egg, larva, pupa and adult.
In the first stage, the egg is laid by a female fly on the surface of rotten food or another suitable substance. The egg hatches into a maggot (larva). The maggot feeds on the material where it hatched and then molts into a second stage of development called a pupa. The pupa is like a cocoon for the fly where it goes through metamorphosis into an adult fly.
The adult housefly has six legs, two antennae and one pair of wings. It uses its wings to help it move around quickly to find food and mates. Houseflies have compound eyes that allow them to see well enough to walk around without bumping into things while they search for food. They also have three small ocelli near their heads which sense light and dark so they can tell day from night when looking for food or mates in dark areas like caves or attics where there isn’t much light coming in through windows during winter months when days are short outside due to cold weather conditions outside with temperatures falling below freezing levels which causes snowfall accumulation on ground surfaces around homes located within suburban communities located within suburban areas located throughout America’s geographical landscape.
House fly feeding habits and diet
House flies are omnivorous insects. They feed on organic matter such as decaying vegetation, fungi, and carrion. They are attracted to food with high moisture content and can be found near garbage cans, compost piles, and other sources of organic waste. House flies feed on liquids by inserting their long proboscis into the food source and sucking up the liquid.
House flies lay their eggs in moist environments such as garbage cans and animal dung. The larvae live in these environments until they pupate into adult flies. Adult house flies have a lifespan of about one month during which they will mate several times with different partners before dying.
