While some larger species like horse flies produce painful bites, the greatest danger presented by flies is their capacity to spread millions of dangerous pathogens. Houseflies can transmit diseases, including malaria, salmonella, staphyllococcus and E. Coli. They can also contaminate food, ruining $10 billion worth of agricultural products each year.
