There are more than 16,000 species of flies in North America. They spread diseases in every part of the world except the polar ice caps.

  • A pair of flies can produce more than 1 million offsprings with their offsprings’ offspring in weeks.

  • Flies can rapidly spread diseases because they move quickly from the garbage area to the food.

  • They have two wings and that is why they land more often. Whenever they land, they leave thousands of bacteria over there.

  • If they land on food or utensils, there are chances that one can catch diarrhoea, food poisoning, and blood infections.

When flies feed on wastes, they collect a lot of pathogens on their legs and mouth. They then travel and feed on fresh fruits, foods and tend to contaminate it with those pathogens. Due to this they transmit diseases when they vomit or just walk on the surfaces of the food.
