Why do you get houseflies in the house?
 House flies like moisture, organic matter, and warmth. They get into houses, by way of cracks and improperly fitted openings such as doors, screens, and windows.  They're particularly attracted to waste containers that hold kitchen scraps. These containers may not be tightly lidded, and may not be emptied daily into an outside container. So they're a choice environment for laying eggs. When the eggs hatch, the resulting larvae have a ready food supply. Under the best conditions, the time from egg to adult fly can be seven days.

For one house flies are the most dangerous of all animals because they land on animal wastes and other harmful materials. I suggest that you get rid of them. ANSWER House fl…ies are NOT the ,most dangerous of all animals. Mosquitos are are the most dangerous as they carry malaria and that kills thousands of people every year! There are no dangers to houseflies, they just seem dirty to us, they land on our food, they eat our excrement , they can go in your mouth, they are very very irritating and there are too many of them. I'd check out the reason WHY you have house flies in your house as that would be more of a problem( if there is a lot of them) ie do you have a dead animal stuck in a chimney, or is there a lot of rubbish near your house etc! f4 The first poster is correct and has every right to be concerned. Flies land on dog/cat waste, vomit of other animals, eat garbage and every single time they land on YOUR food or on YOUR counter where your food may be they excrete. This is GERMS! There is no problem with flies in a house and that's what a fly swatter is used for and I use it. Sometimes people during the warmer months are in and out of the house, may have a window open and that's how the flies get in. I just say to my cat Molly 'Get that thing!' She is faster than the speed of light and swats it enough to stun it and I swat it with my fly swatter and throw it out in the garbage. Flies actually do save peoples lives believe it or not. Often when people have gone down the side of a cliff either by auto or hiking and have wounds the flies will leave eggs which turn into maggots which eats the dead skin and it has often saved a person's leg or arm or a wound that could get much more infected. As I have always said each creature has it's use. Still, if in your house flies can carry many germs that you don't want on your food or your counter tops. I've read that there is so much air flow over their feet when they fly that they are virtually free of harmful bacteria after just 20 feet of flying.Although they might be pesky at times, they're living jewels who play an important and useful role by recycling waste, pollinating plants, and as a food source for birds, amphibians, reptiles, other arthropods, and small mammals.
Houseflies breathe through a complicated structure of tubes (called tracheae and tracheoles) and air sacs. Oxygen is pulled into the body through openings in their abdomens c…alled spiracles. Once the oxygen has been pulled in, the outer most vents close and the air is forced into increasingly smaller pipes known as tubules, until it reaches the required cells.

Since flies are insects, they do not have a backbone. They have an exoskeleton instead which is only on the outside.
Meat (either raw or cooked) will attract houseflies fairly quickly. And corn on the cob that has had the corn eaten off it is an excellent bait for the housefly.
about 75 to 120 eggs
No a housefly does not have a shell, it is an insect and has an exoskeleton.
No, It can't
sometimes only a few days. a species of mayfly only live a few minutes
Because it is the most common of all domestic flies and lives in human habitations.
A house fly moves by flying. The wings of a house fly can beat about 200 times in one second.
The common housefly is smaller than a dime, it has 2 wings and if veiwed through a microscope it has little prickly hairs all over it, they are nasty and they will get on your… food and contaminate your food. So try to kill them asap and keep your food covered.
No, houseflies are insects. Insects do not have feathers.
