Fly Disinfestation Services
It can reproduce with great ease, both because of its ability to lay eggs inside any decomposing biological material, and because of the speed at which larvae develop into adults, in turn capable of reproducing. : about 10 days. Its shelf life under excellent nutritional and environmental conditions is 8-10 days, during which it can lay up to 1000 eggs (150-200 at a time every 3-4 days). The adult insect uses it to feed on proboscis. Solid foods are sprinkled with saliva to dissolve and then sucked out of the proboscis. These insects can only fly a few kilometers from where they were born. They are active only during the day and rest at night in the corners of rooms or on the ceilings.

Due to its construction, the fly is adapted to transport microorganisms, the number of which exceeds 1,000,000.
