After 1-2 days of fertilization, the zygote will develop into a larva which is segmented, have mouth hooks, and actively feed. after the larval stage comes the pupa stage in which the body is enclosed in a puparium (outer hard shell) and is inactive and immature. After the pupa states the adult comes out from the puparium by breaking it.
