How Long Does a Fly Live?

Answer

The life cycle of the common housefly is about three to five weeks total. You see, first the female lays the eggs. Then within a day larvae, or maggots hatch from the eggs. The larvae live for about one week, then the transformation takes place. This is actually known as a complete metamorphosis. This change transforms the larvae into adult fly. The adults will live from two to four weeks, depending on the environment. You can find more information here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Housefly
