Flies are dipterous insects, with complete metamorphosis – egg, larva, pupa and adult. The most common urban species are the house fly, the fruit fly and the sewage fly.
The housefly is an insect that lives in the environments most frequented by man and has a great adaptive capacity. It does not feed on solid particles, it just regurgitates an enzymatic juice, saliva and stomach juice over the solid food to liquefy it and then suck it through the mouth. That’s the way you feed.
Their characteristics and habits turn them into transmitters and spreaders of various diseases such as diarrhea, dysentery, typhoid fever, cholera, tuberculosis, salmonella, among others.
Fruit flies are small flies and have a special attraction for fresh and fermenting fruits and vegetables. The infested materials are fruits and vegetables (bananas, grapes, peaches, pineapples, tomatoes, potatoes, etc) and fermented liquids such as beer, wine and vinegar.
Sewer flies are small flies that live near sewer pipes, in bathrooms, kitchens and wetter places. Its biggest activity is at night. Adults live for about two weeks and, in places with a high degree of infestation, after death they generate a dust that, if inhaled, can cause allergic and respiratory diseases, such as asthma.
