Damage flies cause
Flies are serious pests of crops and deadly parasites of animals (including humans). Fies infect their host plant’s roots causing widespread damage to crops, killing them in the process. The damage is caused as the fly larvae feed and move through the soil feeding on different roots.
Orkin.com tells us that flies are also carriers of easily communicable diseases. Flies collect pathogens on their legs and mouths when females lay eggs on decomposing organic matter such as faeces, garbage and animal corpses. Flies also carry diseases on the small hairs that cover their bodies, from which they also transfer pathogens to food or touched surfaces. Diseases carried by flies include typhoid, cholera, dysentery.salmonella, anthrax and tuberculosis. Flies have also been known to transmit the eggs of parasitic worms.
