Don’t be fooled by mimicry and misinformation.  Flies, taxonomically known as the Diptera, are colorful, elusive, beguiling, acrobatic, charming, and helpful.  So, you ask, there’s more to flies than filth and bite? Yes!  How would you know?  Find the joy of flies by taking a closer look at the qualities across the wide diversity of the Diptera with an overview of Dipteran life histories, feeding habits, beneficial behaviors, and basic fly family identification.  All that, you, too, can advocate for flies and their important ecological roles.
