There are over hundred thousands species of flies in the world. Most of them have the same life cycle and have an average life span of a month. They can only be differentiated by their physical attributes, feeding habits or habitats.
Out of these various types of flies, housefly is the most common breed found in our homes.
A housefly defecates about 300 times in a single day – once in every 4-5 minutes. Houseflies are the carriers of many diseases, and they are known to transfer over 100 pathogens resulting in some serious diseases like typhoid, tuberculosis, cholera and dysentery. Houseflies do not bite and feed only on liquids which they produce by spitting saliva solid food to pre-digest it.

The appearance of large numbers of adults, and the presence of creamy-white maggots about 6mm long on garbage or manure are the most obvious sign of a fly infestation. In the case of a heavy infestation, deposits of saliva and faecal material (fly specks) can often be seen on walls and surfaces where the flies rest.
