How to deal with flies
Human illness from contamination
What does this mean for me/my plants?
Should you not wash your fruit or veggies before you use them, you could run the risk of being contaminated by disease, which flies leave behind, from decomposing organic materials. Disease can include (but is not limited to) dyssentary, diarrhoea and parasitic worms.
Spray plants with a contact and stomach insecticide to control fly infestations. Visit your local GCA garden centre for advice on the best insecticide or bait.
