The blue bottle fly is among the most commonly found insects worldwide. They are very easily identifiable due to their blue bodies. Additionally, the metallic color of their abdomen makes them distinguishable from ordinary house flies. They have relatively shorter antennas, have spikes on their chest. They have existed for thousands of years, and it’s only recently that a fly fans have effectively kept them away.
The female blue bottle fly lay their eggs very promptly in feces, dead animals, wastes, and dead humans outside their homes. These eggs will hatch within 48 hours to 72 hours into flesh-eating maggots. The larvae pupate into cocoons and then into an adult blue bottle fly. They are among the first to reach food, rotting corpses, etc. are also used in forensic science investigations.
Their female blue bottle fly’s timing of laying eggs on a cadaver is used to estimate the time of death by forensic scientists. Therefore, the blue bottle fly seems to be known for its quick action and is also known for being a source of irritation at picnics, barbeques, open-air restaurants, etc.
The Fly Fan Is Designed According To What The Blue Bottle Fly Avoids
The fly fan is so successful at keeping them from landing up on food and drinks at happy occasions as uninvited guests because blue bottle flies identify it as an artificial barrier. The blue bottle flies are experts at staying glued to any surface, and that is the reason why they avoid the fly fan.
The blue bottle fly has hair on its ventral, which enables them to hold on to things they land on. They are only when they are seen in huge numbers that they be a reason for worry and that is generally the case due to two reasons: either there is an infested food item in the vicinity or the remains of a dead animal in which the flies laid their eggs.
They also have large claws that keep them from slipping off irregular surfaces. They also secrete fluids from their body’s hair to secure themselves from the things that they land on. Due to the blue bottle fly’s inherent ability to latch on to anything and everything due to their claws, hairs, fluid secretions, etc., avoid landing on anything unnatural. Technologists of the fly fan utilize this.
Other Features Of The Fly Fan.
The fly fan is shaped with a broad base that tapers to the top. It weighs about 200 grams or about 7 ounces. Two batteries can power it, and its dimensions are approximately 35mm x 35mm x 100 mm. It is odor-free and is specially designed to be mounted on food table tops. It has specially designed paper-like blades with holographic dots. When the paper-like blades rotate, the bubbles refract colored light, which makes the fan seem like a strange object.
The edges have a rubbery, paper-like feel to them and do not cause any damage to humans, even at top speed. These blades stop when they come in contact with anything and resume their activity once the obstacle is moved, i.e., you move your hands away. You can also keep any food item, tall glass with drinks, etc., under the fly fan without any danger of the food being blown away or the glass of liquid tipping over. The fly fan is a simple but perfect solution to the problems caused by the blue bottle fly.
