Fly Facts that You Should Know About

Approximately 120.000 species of flies have been described. The actual number of species is much larger. However, all flies belong to the Diptera Family – animals with two wings. Flies can ingest ample amounts of bacteria each time they land on an object. They only feed on liquids, in order for a fly to digest solid food, the fly must first spit on their meal to liquify it.

The life span of flies depends on their species. Many flies live from 8 days to 2 months and some can survive up to one year.
