Do Flies Carry Disease?

If you've ever been in a place where there are a lot of flies, or if you've seen places on TV like this, you may have wondered about this question. Perhaps you've seen images of an outdoor meat market where the food is not properly covered, and flies are buzzing everywhere, landing on the meat and fish and other foods. Would you want to purchase those foods? Most would say no. But why is this? What's wrong with a few flies? The fact is flies can carry disease. They crawl all over things like rotting dead animals, feces, and decomposing food in places like dumps, sewers, and anywhere else where there is death and rot. They lay their eggs on decomposing materials and, to eat, flies will deposit saliva onto their food. This partially digests the material so they can then suck it up through their straw-like mouthparts. In doing so, they pick up all sorts of harmful bacteria on their feet and bodies; then they fly into your home or backyard, and land on your hamburger.
