A team of researchers from the VIB-KU Leuven Center for Microbiology found that house flies are real taxi’s for microbes. And, they do not care much about which passengers they are taking along for the ride. Bacteria, fungi and even pathogenic microbes are all transported on the flies’ bodies. Inside the flies, however, the diversity of microbes is lower, suggesting that only specific microbes survive. The findings will be published in BMC Microbiome.
