Caption: Maggots (Musca domestica). These maggots are the larvae of the housefly, the most common fly occurring in homes. Each female fly can lay up to 500 eggs, usually in dead and decaying organic matter, such as domestic waste. The maggots hatch from the eggs within a day and are able to feed on the organic matter. The maggots undergo several moults before transforming into pupae from which the adult houseflies emerge. This cycle is known as complete metamorphosis.
