In this case, I am speaking of three specific flies. The Common Housefly, the Bluebottle, and the Horsefly.
Unbelievably, many people don’t like to kill them, and shoo them out instead. They come back, just so you know.
This is why should show them no mercy, and do your best to eradicate them from your home.
Houseflies poo a lot, in fact almost every time they land. So next time one lands on your food, remember Salmonella and E.coli.
Houseflies taste with all six of their feet.
Houseflies slurp up their food. First they vomit digestive juices onto solid foods and once the food liquidises, they suck it back up.
Still want to open a window and let them out?
Bluebottle flies are distinguished by their distinctive coloration and loud buzzing flight. These flies commonly infest carrion or excrement, and the larvae of some species infest and may even kill sheep.
That’s right. They ‘infest excrement’. Then they come and land on the salad you have just prepared, or the pie cooling on a rack.
Horse-flies or horseflies are true flies in the family Tabanidae in the insect order Diptera. They are often large and agile in flight, and the females bite animals, including humans, to obtain blood. They prefer to fly in sunlight, avoiding dark and shady areas, and are inactive at night.
Yes, these very large flies bite humans (including me) to suck our blood. Then the bites can swell up to the size of an egg, and are very painful. In some cases, allergic reaction to their bites have caused death in adults.
The world would be a healthier and happier place without these filthy things in it.
