House Fly Health Concerns
House flies are capable of carrying and transmitting more than 100 pathogens, including parasitic diseases, bacterial diseases and viruses. Flies intake a large amount of food and may subsequently transmit disease through the saliva and vomit used to soften that food. Additionally, house flies defecate virtually every time they land, creating yet another potential source of contamination.
