Flies are the Largest Group of Insects that Transmit Disease

A Most Efficient Transport System

Flies are a most efficient transport system. Pathogenic organisms are ingested by flies and transferred onto their body and mouth parts from the filth they feed on, such as animal waste, garbage, human waste, septic waste, animal carcasses, rodents, and birds.

Flies regurgitate their food to help in digestion. This vomit is transferred onto the food we eat, dishes, utensils, food preparation equipment, or directly onto humans and animals through direct contact.

Common Species of Flies

There are more than 200 species of filth flies. The most common are:

  • House Fly

  • Stable Fly (can travel over 50 miles)

  • Blow Fly

  • Flesh Fly

  • Bottle Fly (Green, Blue)

  • Phorid (Humpback Fly)

  • Drain (Filter) Fly
