Flies are animals known as the Latin name Musca Domestica. Flies are insects without being able to, without sting, and without fangs.

For example, E. colli, Helicobacter pylori, Salmonella, Rotavirus, and hepatitis A. Viruses that are capable of causing diseases, such as dysentery, diarrhea, typhus, cholera, eye infections, and infections of the skin.
