No stranger to this one creature. They are everywhere even so close to us.
Here are some types of fly species:

Flies have a life cycle of about 8-10 days starting from larvae to complete form.
Flies are very attracted to CO2, ammonia, and perishable organic matter.
Flies are able to lay 100-150 eggs on surfaces such as food, furniture, and so on.
Flies must be controlled because they can have bad health impacts such as:
Estamoeba dysenteriae/ Entamorba hestolyca.
Kala-azhar disease is a disease caused by the group of protozoa namely Laishmania donovani.
Sleeping sickness is a disease caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma gambiense.
But how to control fly pests as follows:
Place plants that flies don't like like basil, lavender, lemongrass, etc.
Dispose of Garbage Regularly
Use Scented/Essential Oil
Make your own homemade fly repellent spray (vinegar/clothing deodorizer/etc)
Don't make your home or work environment a breeding ground for flies or investment in flies.
