Close up Bluebottle Fly on Leaf Green (Calliphora vomitoria) HD Wallpaper

Bluebottle flies (also known as Blow fly) can often be seen hovering around dustbins. These scavengers are attracted to pet faeces and dead animals and as such are known carriers of disease.

Their name originates from their iridescent colours that are similar to coloured bottles.

Life Cycle
Eggs hatch 0 – 18 hrs (partial development may occur within the female).
Breeds in mostly meat derived substances, sometimes cheese.
Common pest of dead rodents/birds etc.
