Our Pest Management Specialists Know All the Filthy Facts about Flies in your Home

A house fly can complete its life cycle in just 10 days if the temperature in your home is warm enough. Here is a sample life cycle:

  1. An adult fly lays its eggs in any organic food waste which can be found in your home, as well as feces or exposed food.

  2. Maggot larvae hatch only after 48 hours depending on the surrounding temperature and feed on the organic matter in which they find themselves.

  3. The next phase is turning into pupa. These become up to ? inch long and migrate to a drier position just below the surface of its breeding ground where they pupate.

  4. It takes approximately about 10 days for the pupa to metamorphose and turn into an adult fly which is capable of breeding. Once it has reached this stage, a fly lives for 3-4 weeks and can lay nearly 1,000 eggs.

Salmonella is just one of the diseases which house flies can carry. Other diseases include parasitic worms, cholera, typhoid, anthrax, tuberculosis, etc. In order to avoid any bacterial infections and contamination with any of these, we strongly recommend you to book a pest exterminator service specialist once you notice that too many flies are inhabiting your property and the surrounding neighborhood.
