Why do flies rub their hands together?

I see those meddlesome flies plotting our demise, rubbing their mischievous little fly hands together. What are they planning?

Turns out flies are not actually criminal masterminds. They rub their limbs together to clean them, getting gunk like pollen and dust out of sensory receptors—taste receptors, interestingly enough. Those receptors clue the flies in to what kind of surface they've landed on, so it's pretty important to keep them functional. Kind of ironic that such gross insects would place such a high priority on staying clean, but there you go.

World domination.

They seem to have a very clever plan of inciting hate against other species. Quite the expression of intelligence playing the game so many steps ahead. Strangely they seem to promulgate this stereotype to garner future victim status. Knowing why is the unanswered part of the question. Perhaps they know the age of veganism is here. Once all the humans stop eating meat they will die. Then the flies will feast. Also, they are washing their hands, duh, corona.

The final reason why flies rub their hands together is to protect themselves. When flies can be seen folding their legs over the mouth, the cleaning process extends. The flies remove the hairs positioned on their heads by doing this.

When you see flies sitting on the windowsill rubbing their legs together, they are cleaning themselves. ... They have to keep these sense organs clean so they can fly with precision to find food and mates and avoid predators.

The real answer is because flies have eggs on their hands if you leave food out a fly will go on it and rubs off their eggs soon later the eggs hatch and you will see maggots on that peice of food
