Latin: Sarcophaga carnaria. 11-13 mm long, gray striped chest and typically chequered abdomen. Just as the blowfly, the female grey flesh fly also seeks out dead animals to lays her eggs in. Grey flesh fly eggs hatch as soon as they are placed so in principle they give birth to live offspring.
( Latin: Sarcophaga carnaria) This large grey fly is occasionally seen indoors. Like the true blowflies it lays on dead animals, so all meats and meat products must be kept out of its reach. The eggs hatch just before they are laid so the flesh fly can be said to produce live young.
