The eggs of a fly are about 2.1mm. Are a creamy white The eggs are piled in small groups. The maximum temperature of an egg can be 25c – 30c. Eggs must stay smooth or they will not hatch The female fly can lay up to 500 eggs
Fly Larva can be 3-9 mm long. Usually a whitish color by the head. Head has one pair of dark hooks. Like warm weather. Dumb bell shape and are soft. Attach them selves to rocks and wood Are a food for birds and reptiles Before they are pupas they are about 15 -20 mm in size some fly larvae eat other larvaes Are called “eating machines” because they can eat quite a bit Larvaes can consume 60cm of a human body Fly larvae molt (shed) their skin twice before going on to the next stage of their life When ready to change into their next stage they go about 50ft to find a cold, dry place to change stages
Goes underground when changing into an adult fly About 8mm long while in pupa stage Can be yellow, red, brown or black While changing into a adult fly. They go in sacs called a ptilinum uses its head to break out of the ptilinum Have reddish brownish skin when becoming an adult
Feeds on body fluids Female adult flies lay 75-100 eggs Can travel 20 miles per day 6-7 mm long Have markings on the sides Wide space in between eyes Usually live 15-25 days Female fly will lay 400 eggs in her whole entire life If not have food they only live 2-3 days The only way female flies are able to have babies if they have food to eat Female flies are larger than male fly Possible for them to live for about 2 months A fly up close
Eggs take one day to hatch Eggs look like grains of rice Scientists tried seeing how much the fly population would grow. By August there were 191,010,000,000,000,000,000 flies in total.
This is the end of my slide show. I hope you enjoy it and learn a little something that will come in handy some day. Bye !!!!!!!! :)
