Council investigations on fly infestation continue

COUNCIL officers are continuing their investigations to find the source of a fly problem in parts of Llanelli.

A sample has been tested by an external pest control company which has identified them as a common house fly.

Officers are continuing to search and investigate the area for the source of this matter.

Cllr Philip Hughes, executive board member for public protection, said: “Test results have identified that this is a common house fly, which unfortunately makes it very difficult to identify the source. We are, however, linking in with an external agency who will be sending expert technicians down as soon as possible to further assist our officers on the ground with trying to identify the source.

“We appreciate that this is a very unpleasant situation in this warm weather, but be assured we are doing all we can to try to locate the source and to solve this problem as soon as possible. We are also linking in with Public Health Wales to ensure the advice we are giving remains appropriate for the circumstances. Again, can I please remind people of basic hygiene advice, which is to keep food in containers and in the refrigerator, to clean work surfaces, keep windows closed when possible and to treat areas with household pesticides.”

If you have specific information that might help the council with its enquiries, please send details to
