House flies are a nuisance and also transport disease-causing organisms. The adults feed on a variety of liquid or semi-liquid substances beside solid materials which have been softened by saliva. They carry pathogens on their bodies and in their faeces and can contaminate foodstuffs and contribute to the transfer of food-borne illnesses. For these reasons they are considered pests.
