Flies are small passive flying mobs.

Spawning Edit

Natural generation Edit

Flies spawn on grass blocks at light levels of 9 or more with at least 2 block space above. They often spawn in groups of 4 during world generation.

Drops Edit

Flies only drop 1 to 3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf. Otherwise, they drop nothing.

Behavior Edit

Flies wander and fly around aimlessly. They tend to fly around for a period of time before falling to the ground (they are immune to fall damage). They can be heard buzzing occasionally. They will fly away from the player when approached.

Flies will sometimes follow you if you have rotten flesh in hand. Like scorpions and other insects, flies can scale up walls, and can also trigger pressure plates directly beneath them.
