The House Fly The housefly is a very widely known insect To most people it is just a pest To many insects it is a source of food In many ways the housefly is a pest but in many others ways it is beneficial The fly has a head thorax and abdomen It is furry with big compound eyes Its 2 wings are so thin you can see the veins in them It has a sucking mouth part It is black with gray stripes and on the side are air holes called spiracles These are used for breathing The fly is located everywhere except for extreme temperature places It will eat any food or garbage It even eats poo They carry diseases such as malaria It lays them when it lands on something There are 4 stages of life First the adult female will lay up to 250 eggs at once in the water or on the ground Then the larva called maggots hatches from the egg They just eat so they can grow Then come the pupa It goes inside a cocoon for 3-6 days It gradually looses its outer skin Then when it is done it becomes an adult fly It will live for about 3-4 weeks during the summer Now it will find a mate and reproduce sexually Then the cycle will begin again I think that the fly is very important for the other insects that eat it and survive off of it But I also think like most people that the fly is one of the most annoying insects ever
