Flies are an annoying, unhealthy problem plaguing many home owners throughout summer and fall. Females deposit 100 eggs at a time on any suitable medium. Normally these eggs hatch in less than 1 day. After feeding, maggots will migrate to a dry area to pupate and turn into an adult. This entire cycle can take place is as little as 6 days. To keep flies from being a problem, make certain screens are tightly fitted, use plastic garbage bags and keep grass and weeds mowed regularly.
