Some flies may have eggs that may not be dead. Houseflies, for example, can lay up to 500 eggs in their lifetime. They seek out areas where they can lay eggs. A common place for houseflies to lay their eggs is garbage. However, if you see any flies that may be dead, contact a professional immediately.
Flies undergo four different life stages. During their first instar, larvae are about two millimeters long. They grow to five millimeters by the time they shed their skin. In their second and third instars, larvae grow to about 15 mm in length. At this point, the larvae enter a pupal stage, where they begin looking for a mate.
While these flies are not harmful to humans, they can cause a variety of problems for your property. For example, they can contaminate your food or other items. In such cases, you can contact Ehrlich Pest Control to have them come out and remove the fly from your property.
The average lifespan of houseflies is twenty to twenty-five days, but they can live longer than that. Some species can even live as long as 60 days. The length of time that flies live depends on many factors.
