Flies are ubiquitous insects in the Southeastern United States, including states like Georgia. While various species exist, common ones include house flies, fruit flies, and blow flies. Flies are attracted to decaying organic matter, waste, and food remnants, making them potential carriers of disease-causing pathogens. Their rapid reproductive cycle poses challenges in controlling infestations once established.
