C. ) 18 Death, Decomposition, and Detection Dogs The first requirement for normal cell chemistry is a steady, constant temperature. 6°F or about 37°C. Many of the biochemical reactions that must take place to keep a cell alive and functioning depend on just the right temperature.

With “ideal” conditions, fly eggs hatch within a few hours (6–40 hours) go through molts, and then crawl off to pupate for 6–18 days (Pope, 2010).
