Flies can be frustrating but many people underestimate the dangers they pose.
Interesting Fly Facts
Flies are one of the most diverse species of insects, with over 120,000 different species recorded. All flies are insects within the Diptera Family – a categorisation of animals with two wings. There are many different types, including houseflies, fruit flies, horseflies, and dung flies.
Flies have a pretty weird diet and process of eating. These pests cannot eat solid foods; instead, they spit digestive juices onto solid foods to liquify them. This leads to them ingesting and spreading bacteria wherever they go. Interestingly, they can also taste with their feet.
Flies do not live for long. Depending on their species, they can live for just eight days or all the way up to a year.
How Do Flies Get into Your Home or Business?
Do you ever wonder how flies get into your house? It seems like they come from nowhere! Well, there’s actually a pretty simple explanation. They are attracted to food and can smell it from a long way away.
Some of the ways they enter your property include:
- Hitching a ride in food, rotting organic produce, or garbage.
- Due to open windows, holes, doors, or small gaps, they sneak in.
- They can even get in through pipes and drains.
