Green Bottle Fly Infestation

A large number of bottle flies may indicate that the flies have established an indoor breeding site. This can quickly result in an infestation. Female bottle flies lay as many as 2,000 eggs. Their eggs are usually deposited in decomposing organic matter. White larvae, also known as maggots, hatch from the eggs. They are fully grown within just a few days.
