Too many fly's are popping up

Every time I had the play button way too many flies are popping up and I'm not sure what is going on and how to fix it I went back and check my work but nothing seems wrong

Could we see your code please? It's hard to troubleshoot without your code.

public class FlySpawner : MonoBehaviour {

private GameObject flyPerfab;

private int totalFlyMinimum = 12;

private float spawnArea = 25f;

public static int totalFlies;

// Use this for initialization
void Start () { 
    totalFlies = 0; 


// Update is called once per frame
void Update () {

    //while the total number of flies is less than the minimum...
    while (totalFlies < totalFlyMinimum)

        //...then increment the total number of flies...

    // create a random position for the fly...
    float positionX = Random.Range (-spawnArea, spawnArea);
    float positionZ = Random.Range (-spawnArea, spawnArea);

    Vector3 flyposition = new Vector3 (positionX, 2f, positionZ);  

    //... and create a new fly.
    Instantiate(flyPerfab, flyposition, Quaternion.identity);
