Does Fly Contain Antibiotics?

Scientists have been studying whether the fly contains antibiotics. They think the answer is yes, as flies have been found to produce antibacterial substances at various stages of their development. However, they are unsure of exactly what those antibiotics do or how they are made. To answer this question, researchers are now studying the surface of flies.

In addition to their antibiotic properties, fly vomit is also known to contain bacteria. However, unlike human beings, the vomit from flies does not pass through the digestive system. Instead, it is transported between the mouth and crop with saliva. The vomit contains acids, enzymes, and partially digested microorganisms. During the study, the researchers discovered that fly vomit contains antibacterial properties.

The fly has been found to neutralize the bacteria Escherichia coli, which can cause infections in humans. In addition, it contains Bacillus circulans, a type of bacteria that produces antibiotics. This bacteria also produces Bacteriophages, which are helpful for killing germs.

Another study found that flies have the capacity to fly 10 kilometers, which suggests that they may act as vectors for antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The researchers published their results in the journal Microbial Drug Resistance.
