1. How do flies affect your life?

The presence of flies always creates an uncomfortable feeling for everyone working and resting. Impressions of flies from garbage dumps, manure heaps, carrying dirt on their legs, bodies, and proboscis, landing on chairs, objects, food, homes, and even on the body have truly caused an unpleasant sensation. Moreover, the presence of flies is a sign of unhygienic conditions.

Flies – carriers of many dangerous diseases

Not only causing discomfort, flies are also carriers of many pathogenic microorganisms from polluted places to humans and their food. When these microorganisms attach to the exterior of flies, they only survive for a few hours, but when swallowed into their intestines, they can survive for several days.

To feed, flies fly from organic matter in garbage, soil rich in organic matter, human and animal waste to human food and drinks, carrying a large amount of disease-causing microorganisms clinging to their bodies, legs, and wings. Most of the diseases transmitted by flies are directly infected through food, water, air, hands, and contact between people.

Diseases transmitted by flies include intestinal infectious diseases (such as dysentery, diarrhea, typhoid fever, cholera, and some helminth infections), eye infections (styes), and some skin diseases (such as warts, acute skin diseases, fungi, etc.). That’s why we often feel annoyed and uncomfortable when flies appear everywhere in the house.
