Yes they do.

@doyendroll You wouldn’t mind having a discussion about this ? Just questions I wanted to ask.

I have a double brick house on brick piers that has ventilation tiles built into the brickwork.

Flies are attracted inside to lay their eggs and the next generation make whatever way out they can.

Fruit flies are another story.

I get lots of flies in my house a couple of times a year. I swat them and swat them and eventually they’re gone.

@doyendroll Do they really honestly and intentionally laid eggs into our mouths while we’re sleeping at night?

It wouldn’t surprise me if Jan had a swat sticker on her door to dissuade pests.

Only in your dreams.

They do not lay eggs in your mouth while you are sleeping.

On the rare occasion a fly gets in my house, I set a paper plate with some jam out in the enclosed patio, turn on the light out there and turn off all the indoor lights. A few minutes later, the fly follows the light, and I close the patio door. The next morning, I throw away the plate with a dead fly on it.

They must. Every morning I have to clean up after them and empty their little ashtrays.
