Blowfly laying eggs, SEM Featured Print

Blowfly laying eggs, SEM

Blowfly laying eggs. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a female Lucilia sp. blowfly laying her eggs (lower left). A blowfly lays its eggs on dead bodies. This behaviour is studied by forensic entomologists. A blowfly detects a dead body by the odour of decomposition, and can arrive at a corpse minutes after death and lay up to 300 eggs. The decaying flesh is food for the maggots (fly larvae) that hatch from the eggs within 24 hours. These two-millimetre-long eggs are laid in patches around moist orifices such as the nose, ears and eyes, as well as open wounds. Fresh and unhatched blowfly eggs will indicate a very recent time of death. Magnification unknown
