Flies goes through a complete metamorphosis, meaning that an adult fly lays an egg then the egg progresses to a larva then to a pupa and then are considered to be an adult. Eggs are typically laid in a number of different places, some of which include flesh, feces, water or decaying animals. The life cycle of a fly is rather short generally 15-30 days. A Laid egg will hatch into a grey/white maggot about 2mm long, in about 3 days the maggot is about 12mm long within the next four to five days the maggot’s body cells dissociate and start to take the form of an adult fly. Once the flies body is completely transformed into an adult body, it breaks out of the pupal case and expands its wings and is ready to fly around and find a mate (Kozhukhov)!
