Pest World for Kids: Flies

The housefly tastes with its feet, which are 10 million times more sensitive to sugar than the human tongue.

Baby flies are called larvae but they are also known as maggots. Medical doctors use a special species of maggots to help patients with flesh wounds, especially burn victims. Maggots eat away the damaged flesh, which helps the wound heal.

To learn how to get rid of flies and prevent infestations, visit the official NPMA website.
