🤔 HOW IT WORKS ⁉
How flies feed food to its young
Females do not care for or protect eggs. Females simply leave the eggs where they will be safe from predators and have plenty to eat upon hatching. The mother then tries to find a suitable source of nutrition in the environment, deposits the larvae and leaves them to survive on their own. The mother does not provide any nutrition for her young. That’s the standard fly way of life.
