About fly insect
Flies are insects of the order Diptera, they have a single pair of wings on the midrib and a pair of stabilizers on the back wing, on the last burning chest. Some flies don't have wings like in the Hippoboscidae family. (According to Wikipedia)
Flies belong to a set of bipedal insects which are ecologically diverse. Flies are parasitic, including endothelial parasites such as bot fly species and extraneous parasites such as mosquitoes, black flies, sand flies or lice. Lots of flies eat dead creatures. Some species suck blood for survival, such as mosquitoes or horse fly. There are also flies that make it easier for plants to pollinate, they are pollen or nectar eaters.
Life cycle of flies
The life cycle of flies includes: eggs, larvae (also called maggots), pupae and adults (winged). The food for the larvae is different from when they are adults. Mosquito larvae, for example, live in water and feed on algae, bacteria and microorganisms in the water while adult male mosquitoes feed on nectar and female mosquitoes suck blood. Flies 2 days after hatching begin to mate, then 2-3 days to lay eggs, each laying from 100 to 150 eggs; when hungry flies cannot mate and if food is lacking in protein the eggs usually do not develop.
What do flies eat?
Flies are omnivores. They eat all kinds of food such as: food, human and animal waste, especially waste carrying infectious pathogens such as sputum, vomit, drool, feces, blood, necrosis. Death ... Flies without drinking water only live 48 hours. Fly mouth structure is suitable for licking and sucking food, the mouth has a structure like shoe soles, they both lick and suck liquid food. Flies eat at least 2-3 times a day, but more if they are not full. It should be noted that flies both eat, vomit, and can pass out food and in vomit or feces can contain many pathogens, not to mention the pathogens that attach to the fly body that they transport from. From one place to another, these are called vectors.
