Flies can transmit diseases among humans because they feed openly on human food as well as germ-infested, rotting, dirty matter alike. The common house fly picks up disease-causing organisms as flies crawl and feed on garbage, rotten objects, and fecal matter.
Those germs that remain on the outside surfaces of a fly might survive for only a few hours. However, organisms that are ingested by the fly may survive in the fly’s gut for several days. Transmission happens when the fly regurgitates or makes contact with people and/or our food.
Most of the illnesses can also be caught more directly through contamination of our food, water, hands, and person-to-person contact. This is why we thought it vital to review the best flypapers to catch these disgusting insects if they enter your home.
