Flies & Mosquitoes

The housefly is considered a pest that can carry serious diseases. Each female fly can lay approximately 500 eggs in several batches of about 75 to 150. Within a day, larvae (maggots) hatch from the eggs; they live and feed on (usually dead and decaying) organic material. They are capable of carrying over 100 pathogens, such as those causing typhoid, cholera, salmonellosis, bacillary dysentery, tuberculosis, anthrax, ophthalmia, and parasitic worms.
