Factors influencing Lifespan
Here are the lifespans of three different types of flies:
House fly: 15-25 days
Fruit fly: 30-40 days
Blowfly: 8-10 days
Flies are susceptible to temperature, humidity, and air quality changes. Extreme heat, cold, or dryness can cause dehydration and stress to the fly, shortening its lifespan.
Infections caused by bacteria, viruses, and parasites, can shorten the lifespan of flies.
Parasites such as mites, lice, and wasps, which feed on flies blood and other bodily fluids can cause significant damage to the fly and ultimately lead to its death.
Flies are preyed upon by birds, spiders, and reptiles. These predators reduce the population of flies and limit their lifespan.
Flies require a balanced diet to thrive, and deficiencies in essential nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins, and vitamins can impact their overall health and lifespan.
Flies feed on plants, including crops, and their food sources can be contaminated with pesticides. The chemical exposure reduces the lifespan of flies.
Droughts can reduce food availability, while floods can destroy breeding grounds, leading to reduced lifespan.
