- M. domestica, the common house fly, has a complete metamorphosis with distinct egg, larva or maggot, pupal, and adult stages and is known to be a vector of many human and animal pathogens. In humans and animals, many diseases including typhoid, cholera, bacillary dysentery, tuberculosis, anthrax ophthalmia, infantile diarrhea, and parasitic worms are caused by more than 100 pathogens that have been associated with M. domestica. Because of its remarkable immune defenses, M. domestica is capable of living with such pathogens without any ill effects.
