Flies are insects that can be found all over the world. The most common domestic fly is the housefly, which is fed with faeces, open wounds, spittle and decaying organic flesh or food. Other common flies are the fruit fly and the cluster flies. A female fly can lay about 500 eggs, which hatch within one day. The warmer the temperature, the faster the flies grow, but can also survive during the winter by remaining in the grub phase.

Houseflies can only feed on liquids. In order to turn a solid food to liquid, they spit out saliva or vomit on it and then suck it back in. Through this procedure, flies can spread diseases by feeding with our food, after having visited excreta or carrions. They also deposit faeces constantly. Apart from their vomit or saliva, they can transmit organisms through their hair or mouth parts. They can cause various diseases, such as: parasitic diseases by carrying cysts of protozoa end eggs of helminths, bacterial diseases, such as typhoid, cholera and dysentery, poliomyelitis and viral hepatitis by carrying enteroviruses or accidental myiasis.

Flies rest during the night, usually at the corners of rooms or on ceiling hangings. During the day, they are active and cannot be easily killed, since they have compound eyes. A compound eye is actually an eye made up of lots of eyes, something that makes the fly able to see all around it. For this reason, the use of insecticide is consider necessary to get rid of flies.
