Fly

Your Enemy the Fly 


    THE FLY IS SUCH A SMALL creature ; how can it possibly kill a man?
   It is by carrying infection that the fly kills people. A1- though flies kill tens of thousands of people around the world every year, few suspect the fly of being a murderer. 
    In order to understand the deadly work of the fly, it is necessary to study its life history and habits. 
     The female fly lays eggs and these eggs change into larvae (maggots). The larvae later become flies. It requires from ten to fourteen days from the time the fly lays its eggs until the new generation of flies is produced. One female fly will lay at least 120 eggs, and in the course, of two weeks each of these 
120 eggs will develop into a fly. From this it. will be seen that in a few month's time many millions of flies may come from a single fly.
     The chief breeding place of the common fly is in animal manure. Flies also breed in human excrement and in rotting material of almost any kind. It may be said, that flies breed wherever filth is allowed to accumulate. prefers to live in filthy places. The fly's body and its six legs are all covered with numerous hairs. On each of the six feet of the fly is a rounded pad. These pads are covered with a sticky,glue-like

THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FLY                       THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE FLY
1. Eggs laid in one day by a fly. 2. The larvae stage. 3. The chrysalis stage (three to five days). 4. A fly emerging from a chrysalis. 5. A fully-developed fly. 6. The round completed, and the fly ready to launch another generation of flies, all within ten to fourteen days. 7. The leg of a fly.


material, Having the body and legs covered with hairs and having this sticky material on the feet, the fly is an ideal carrier of disease germs. He moves from piles of manure, from open latrines, from rotten garbage, from sitting on open sores, to the homes of the people where he alights on the food, drinks the milk, sits on the baby's mouth, or its eyes, and thus carries diarrhea, dysentery, typhoid fever and cholera.
     It is the duty of every citizen to destroy the fly by getting rid of places of filth where flies breed, by screening the house to keep flies out, by swatting those that do get in. Declare all-out war on one of man's worst enemies, the common fly!
