What is the definition of a fly?

A fly is an insect with two wings and two pairs of legs. Flies belong to the order Diptera. Their most obvious difference from other insects is their advanced flight ability. Flies have two flight wings and a pair of halteres on their thorax. The halteres act as flight sensors for balance.

What’s a fly’s life span?

The life expectancy of a housefly is 15 to 30 days. This depends on temperature and living conditions. In warm homes, flies live longer. The housefly’s brief life lets them multiply quickly.

Female house flies lay eggs in places where larvae can eat, like animal droppings. The house fly life cycle has four stages – egg, larvae, pupae, and adult.

After mating, females lay 5-6 batches of eggs. Horse flies live 30-60 days. They are larger than houseflies. Horse flies bite and harass horses and humans.

Fruit flies live 40-50 days, longer than house flies. Hibernation lengthens lifespan for some flies. Canadian flies live longer due to cooler temperatures.

Factors like species, temperature, and food availability determine lifespan. The longest a fly has lived is 4 months – the female tsetse fly. Mayflies only live 24 hours, the shortest insect lifespan.
