What Are House Flies?

Found in and around homes across the country, the housefly is a prominent pest in the U.S. While mostly known for being a common nuisance, they also have the potential to carry nasty diseases. Houseflies are dark gray in color and have an ovular shape, one pair of wings, compound red eyes, six legs, and antennae. As adults, these flies can measure up to a quarter of an inch long.

Housefly eggs look like small grains of rice. They then hatch into larvae, also known as maggots, prior to entering the pupal stage. This development period from egg to adult usually takes six to 12 days. A fully grown housefly will only live about 15 to 25 days, but despite this short lifespan, houseflies can reproduce in large numbers. This can lead to a large housefly population in little to no time.

What Attracts Houseflies?

For houseflies, the ideal air temperature is a toasty 83 degrees Fahrenheit. On colder days, they’re attracted to the warm air coming from inside homes and buildings. Houseflies will take advantage of structural issues, like ripped screens, to enter a building. Besides warm weather, flies are attracted to trash, ripened produce, animal carcasses, pet feces, soda and moisture, as these are some of their favorite meals.

What Dangers Do Houseflies Pose?

Unlike fleas, ticks and other pests, houseflies don’t bite. However, they can transfer more than 100 different pathogens that carry disease.

Diseases houseflies may carry include:

  • Cholera
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Tuberculosis
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Salmonellosis
  • Typhoid

As carriers of disease, houseflies can contaminate food surfaces with disease organisms. They also regurgitate and excrete wherever they rest. This is why it’s extremely important to call for housefly extermination in New Jersey and New York as soon as you believe you have a problem.
