Daily Science Fact-How long does a fly live?

On average a house fly will live around 30 days in the wild. 
House flies prefer warmer temperatures, and live longest in temperatures above 70 degrees. 

The lifespan of a fly can also depend on the species. For example, fruit flies live a little longer than house flies. These insects die after about 40 to 50 days.


True flies are insects and belong to the order Diptera.
