bacterial associations across house fly life history: evidence for transstadial carriage from managed flies (diptera: muscidae; musca domestica l.) associate with microbe-rich substrates throughout life history. because larvae utilize bacteria as a food source, most taxa present in the larval substrate, e.g., manure, are digested or degraded. however, some species survive and are present as third-instar larvae begin pupation. during metamorphosis, many bacteria are again lost during histolysis of the larval gut and subsequent remodeling to produce the gut of the imago. it has been previous ...201626798138
