Blue/Green Bottle Fly - Calliphora spp.
Talk about extended families: Houseflies have more than 152,000 relatives—and those are just the ones that researchers know about.
Blue bottle and green bottle flies are a serious pest of farms, stables, gardens and bin areas. The females lay their eggs where they feed, usually in decaying meat, garbage or faeces. When the larvae hatch from the eggs they immediately begin feeding on the decomposing matter located around the hatching area. More than just a nuisance, these flies are carriers of diseases in both humans and animals.
