Give us a call: Houseflies pass through four distinct stages: egg, larva, pupa and adult. Flies dwelling in warm homes and laboratories develop faster and live longer than their counterparts in the wild. The housefly's brief life cycle allows them to multiply quickly if left uncontrolled. Houseflies are known to carry over diseases, including tuberculosis and cholera.
The life cycle of a fly
How we help you stay disinfected:
If you were to ask the average person how long they think a fly lives, more likely than not they will tell you they only live about 24 hours. This is a common misconception, but it's not true of most flies that people have to deal with around their home. House flies and other larger flies that usually infest a house can live for days, maybe even months. Mayflies, however, usually only have a 24 hour lifespan. Flies can contaminate food and cause other problems. Rather than trying to wait out a fly lifespan, it's better to get rid of flies using the professional treatments offered by Ehrlich Pest Control fly specialists.
House fly eggs
They live in our homes, they eat our food, and they bring us disease. Who are they? Do you have a fly problem?
House flies are one of the most commonly recognized and widespread insects in all of the world. Like all other flies, they develop through a process called complete metamorphosis. The fly life cycle has four stages. These stages move from eggs to larvae and pupae to adult. House flies have an incredible ability to reproduce, however, the fly lifespan is typically short. The life cycle of a fly begins with the egg.
