It won’t be very long until we will be seeing house flies again.
Consider these fly facts:
- There are 120,000 species of flies worldwide.
- There are flies in every part of the world except Antarctica.
- Adult house flies live 15 to 25 days.
- It has been stated that a pair of flies beginning operations in April may be progenitors, if all were to live, of 191,010,000,000,000,000,000, flies by August.
- House flies have mouth parts which allow them to ingest only liquid materials. Solid materials are liquified by means of regurgitated saliva.
Flies are equipped with special sensory cells on their antennae and feet which enable them to locate suitable food and egg laying sites. These sensory cells aid in detecting compounds such as ammonia, carbon dioxide and other strong compounds that are emitted from decomposing organic materials, such as carrion and feces. The free interchange flies have with such sites ensures the flies are laden with bacteria on their mouthparts, body hairs and the sticky pads of their feet, as well as in their stomachs (where the bacteria rapidly multiply), feces and vomitus. Contact with any foodstuffs, or feeding, which often involves vomiting and defecating, will contaminate food, preparation surfaces and utensils with potentially disease causing organisms.
Not a pretty picture, is it?
You better get your QuickBayt before things get really ugly.
