When you notice flies flying around your house, you may be wondering, “What does it mean when they fly low?” Most species of flies do not have teeth, so they cannot chew food. Their mouthparts are made of spongy material, like a straw, and they use the digestive juices to liquefy their food. They also have feet, which they use to taste their food.
If you dreamed about flies, you may be receiving a forewarning, or perhaps a gift, to take action before a problem arises. The flies may represent something that you’re ignoring or that you are holding onto too tightly. The flies are also an indication that you have been neglecting someone or clinging to a habit. Flies represent life and death, so you may want to look for new habits.
Flies are attracted to dead animals, including dead mice and squirrels. They are attracted to food that is stored poorly, so it’s vital to store food in a container or refrigerator. You should also avoid dirty dishes and food caked on them. Even small bits of food that aren’t stored properly can attract flies.
Flies are nocturnal creatures. They spend the majority of their time sleeping, and look for safe places to lay their eggs. Their flight speeds vary depending on the species, but the common housefly has a maximum speed of five miles per hour. Their eggs resemble grains of rice and hatch into larvae within 24 hours. The larvae may resemble pale worms or small grubs.
