Flies are a perfect vehicle for spreading diseases. Flies do not possess the ability to chew solid food. So in order to eat they must first regurgitate saliva that will liquefy the solid food. When a fly lands the first thing it does is start the regurgitating process. Another problem is that flies also are attracted to and feed on feces and trash. A sample of what they were just standing in is now on your utensil or food. A fly’s stomach contains millions of microorganisms and even more on the outside. So when they regurgitate the saliva is spreading diseases also.
