- Flies have four stages in their life cycle: egg, larvae (maggot), pupa and adult. The development from egg to adult takes 8-20 days.
- Flies breed in almost any type of moist, warm organic material, like faeces, garbage, fertilizer, food waste, dead animal and other decomposed organic matter.
- Flies can fly 1-5 km away but are usually within a radius of 100-500m from the breeding place. They are active in the day and inactive at night.
- Commonly found species in Singapore: house flies, flesh flies, blow flies, phorid flies and sewer flies.
Signs of infestation: eggs, larvae (maggots), pupae and adults in breeding grounds.
