The idea that flies only live for 24 hours is incorrect, though they don’t have super long lives. Life expectancy varies by species, ranging from around one week to one year in duration. Flies spread disease quickly, in part because they land so often (their wings are incapable of supporting their weight for long). Every time the fly lands, it deposits its bacteria, potentially causing serious illness.
