In ideal conditions, the life cycle of the housefly may be completed in as little as ten days. Under more challenging conditions, it may take as long as two months. The average life cycle of the house fly takes place in ten to twenty-one days. Anywhere from ten to twenty generations of houseflies may occur in a given year. the life cycle of a house fly is egg - larva - pupa - adult. however the larval stage has three instars (development periods). instar 1,2 and 3.
