True flies, scientifically known as Diptera (Greek for two-winged), are a group of insects that are typically associated, in the public mind, with filth and disease. This is because most people only interact with them in their kitchens or in agricultural or medical settings as pests or as carriers of disease. And while these generalisations have some truth to them, the vast majority of flies are not detrimental to human health or food production, but rather form an integral part of numerous ecosystems worldwide (Triplehorn & Johnson 2005).
