The reproduction of flies and mosquitoes.

     Flies and mosquitoes are few insects that go through egg, larva, pupa and adult. These insects vary in size depending on the species, lay a lot of eggs in each set, as they have sensors that favor the choice of location for making and ensure a large amount of supply for the larvae.

Flies and mosquitoes use a telescopic duct for copulation and oviposition.

    At the rear end of the female abdomen of these insects they have a segmented telescopic ovipositor which can be extended for oviposition. According to the insect to which we refer soft ovipositors we find, as the common fly, black fly and mosquito. The fruit fly has ovipositors rigid to facilitate drill fruit. Mosquitoes and black flies usually lay eggs in the water.

     The male has a hidden genital parts, during mating gather around the female ovipositor, to store sperm and fertilize the egg down the oviduct. Usually a female can lay several batches of fertilized eggs of a single copulation. Houseflies are monogamous and mate once. Thanks to the sexual pheromones produced by the females that are attractive to males. Therefore it is widely used to control insect removal methods pheromone traps.


The reproduction of the flies can develop even during flight.
