Types of Flies

House Fly

  1. The female housefly usually mates only once and stores the sperm for later use.

  2. The female House Fly lays batches of about 100 eggs on decaying organic matter such as food waste, carrion, or feces. These soon hatch into legless white larvae, known as maggots. After two to five days of development, these metamorphose into reddish-brown pupae, about 8 millimetres (3⁄8 inch) long. Adult flies normally live for two to four weeks, but can hibernate during the winter.

  3. The adult house fly feeds on a variety of liquid or semi-liquid substances, as well as solid materials which have been softened by their saliva.

  4. The House Fly can carry pathogens on their bodies and in their feces, contaminate food, and contribute to the transfer of food-borne illnesses, while, in numbers, they can be physically annoying. For these reasons, they are considered pests.

Blow Fly/Bottle Fly

  1. The bottle fly/blow fly is found in most areas of the world and is the most well-known of the numerous green bottle fly species.

  2. The common green bottle fly emerges in the spring for mating.

  3. The bottle fly/blow fly females lay their eggs in carrion of all kinds, sometimes in the skin or hair of live animals, causing myiasis.

  4. The bottle fly/blow fly larvae feed on decaying organic tissue.

  5. The bottle fly/blow fly eggs hatch between nine hours and three days after being deposited on the host, with eggs laid in warmer weather hatching more quickly than those in cooler weather.

  6. The female bottle/blow fly lay 150−200 eggs per clutch and may produce 2,000 to 3,000 eggs in her lifetime.

  1. The stable fly resembles the common housefly though smaller, and on closer examination has a slightly wider and spotted abdomen.

  2. The stable fly is abundant in and around where cattle are kept.

  3. Stable fly maggots are often seen in the rotting manure near cattle and poultry.

  4. The adult stable fly of both sexes feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals during the daytime.

  5. For stable fly egg production, the female requires its abdomen to be engorged with blood.

  6. The female stable fly takes approximately 2–5 minutes to engorge, after which it becomes sluggish for a while.

  7. The stable fly eggs are laid among putrefying organic materials such as hay, manure, and wood.

  8. The Male stable fly usually dies after mating and the females after laying eggs.

False Stable Fly

  1. False stable flies are worldwide in distribution and are frequently found in livestock facilities and outside restrooms.

  2. The false stable fly commonly breed in manure and defecate on food, which has been linked to the spread of some disease and illnesses.

  3. Female adult false stable flies usually choose decaying matter as sites to lay the eggs. These nutrient-rich areas are ideal for the growth and development of the hatching larvae.

  4. In contrast to adult flies, the larvae do not have a definite head. Instead, there are two grasping hooks that they use to cut and tear food
