Morning Musca Domestica!
You know the feeling.
You’re at the kitchen table.
Excited to chow down on your no-longer-$5-footlong.
You’ve got all the fixings:
- Bread - hearty multigrain
- Meat - Italian B.M.T.
- Cheese - Provoloneee
- Vegetables - Lettuce, onion, tomato baby
- Sauce: Sweet onion teriyaki. Light.
You bring that sexy sammy right to your lips and you see it:
Ya, that poop eater wants a PIECE!
And it’s rubbing its little hands together like a greedy gobblin!
So wtf are flies actually doing when they land on your food?
You’re gonna want to put that sandwich down…
When a fly lands on your food, it immediately has a problem:
Flies can’t eat solid things.
Solids don’t fit up its little elephant trunk.
So instead, they start regurgitating saliva all over your food:
The saliva liquifies your food so they can drink it.
It’s basically…fly vomit.
But don’t worry!
Flies like to eat other things beside your food!
They love rotting meat:
They love garbage:
They love feces…
You’re eating fly vomit with a side of rotting meat, garbage, and poop.
