Flies do not directly cause worms in humans. However, they can lay eggs and feed on unattended food. As opportunistic creatures, flies can lay eggs anywhere they like, and most of them will do so without human intervention. Flies generally thrive under warm temperatures, but some species can survive during winter by suspending their functions. They lay their eggs and larvae in the spring, when the temperatures are higher.
Some flies lay their eggs on humans, but others will lay their eggs on other insects or objects. These insects can then transmit their eggs to humans via mosquito bites. When the eggs hatch, the larvae will burrow into the skin. This can lead to an itchy, painful bump, or a sensation of pain. Once the larvae burrow through the skin, they will burrow out of the body of the host.
There are several ways to prevent the infestation of flies. First, check for an open wound. If the wound is not properly cleaned, it may attract the larvae. Another way is to apply a topical anesthetic to the affected area. Second, contact a doctor if you notice any symptoms.
A new study has confirmed that flies can transmit gastrointestinal parasites. Flies were found to transmit more than 100 different pathogens. However, this study found that protozoan infections were more common than metazoan infections. This suggests that flies are not the sole cause of worms in humans, although they are a major source of the disease.
