There are more than 300,000 species of flies. They were always around a person and were found on seven continents.
The average fly lives about 30 days.
Flies can save up to 3,000 eggs in their lives (for one month).
The flies have only two wings, this despite the fact that most insects have four. Their wings can flutter up to 200 times per second, and stop when sweat flies the surface.
The fly has more than 4000 lenses in the eye, but they still can not see well! Their vision may be bad, but they can detect movement well.
Flies jump up, then back, before moving forward!
Flies actually lay their eggs on food.
They have glue as a substance on their feet, which helps them to stay on the surface.
Flies cause vomiting on foods before they start eating. This is because they can only consume liquid, and their vomiting liquefies the food. In this case, the saliva completes the transformation of food into liquid before the fly swallows it.
Flies defecate every 4-5 minutes.
