Fact of the Day  

 

More Information  

Flies are very a very stupid species. Unfortunately, nature has given the fly speed unfathomable on a human scale. In just a single second, a common fly can move 300 times the length of its body when, at the speed of sound, an airplane can only does a third of that [source]. Another example of the fly's low intelligence is the fact that it is a follower. In most instances this is a useful quality helping the animal find food, shelter and the like. Unbeknownst to its actions, following other flies can often lead to group casualties atop of some dangling piece of flypaper. Flies on flypaper also act as bait to other bugs in the home.
The gluey bottoms of fly feet have a 10,000,000 times more sensitive palate when it come to the taste of sugar than that of the human tongue [source].
