Flies' sponging mouthparts can easily contaminate food and food handling surfaces.

Flies' sticky feet are good at collecting and spreading bacteria.

Flies lay their eggs in any warm, moist, decaying organic material on which their larvae can feed when they hatch. Flies can carry more than 100 pathogens that cause human diseases, including Salmonella and E. coli. They can easily transfer these pathogens to food and food handling surfaces, on their bodies and with their sponging mouthparts.
