What Do House Flies Eat?


House flies have mouths that are designed to take in liquids. However, if they come upon a desirable solid such as meat, sugar, or fecal matter, they employ a process which renders the food into a liquid. After scraping the solid food into flakes, a housefly will essentially vomit saliva and digestive juices onto the intended meal and wait for it to be broken down into a softer, more liquid state.
