• There are about 17 quadrillion flies in the world and they are found in ever corner of the world
  • Flies are diurnal (active during the daytime) and prefer warm locations
  • Common houseflies eat by vomiting out and sucking in a liquid solution to dissolve the food it needs to live - a vector for disease
  • Houseflies tend to feed at ground level up to 4 ft high
  • Flies rest on curved, edged or horizontal surfaces higher than 4 feet to keep safe and save energy
  • If a fly has recently landed in excrement, it may transmit pathogens causing typhoid, chlorea, dysentery, leprosy, infectious hepatitis as well as many other diseases
  • Each adult female fly lays several hundred to a thousand eggs during it's lifetime (30 days).  Most of these eggs are layed in decaying matter and can complete their growth in as little as 7 days
  • Six or more generations of houseflies may hatch in a single summer
  • When searching for food, houseflies will follow each other and when one finds food, all the others will gather to eat
