Houseflies hatch from eggs into white maggots. They stay in the larva stage for a few days and then grow into pupae, which are usually reddish-brown in color and about a half inch long, before becoming adult houseflies

An adult housefly is usually gray or black with darker stripes on their back, and the males have a yellowish underside. They are about a quarter-inch long. Houseflies have reddish-colored eyes and transparent wings.


Houseflies are found across the globe, from the Artic to the tropics, and are present in all populated parts of the world.
