Ms. Frizzle: With so many varieties of species that is a very difficult Question to answer. Some insects such as the mayfly only live one day. On the other hand, there is a queen termite that lives in the tropics, and some scientists think this queen termite can live for as long as 50 years!
Likewise, people ask, what insect has a lifespan of 3 days?
Their life lasting only for 24 hours. Mayflies also called as 'one-day insects' because of their shortest life span. There are 2500 different species of mayflies in the world. In fact, some members of mayfly family die within few hours.
Do flies only live for 24 hours?
Although the life cycle of a fly can range from days to years depending on species and conditions, all flies undergo a complete four-stage life cycle that consists of egg, larva, pupa and adult stages. The adult housefly can live up to one month in the wild.
Why do flies have such a short lifespan?
Houseflies pass through four distinct stages: egg, larva, pupa and adult. The life expectancy of a housefly is generally 15 to 30 days and depends upon temperature and living conditions. Flies dwelling in warm homes and laboratories develop faster and live longer than their counterparts in the wild.
