A plague of flies descends to make village life hell
ENVIRONMENTAL health officers are baffled by a plague of flies which is making life a misery for the residents of two Wiltshire villages.
Swarms of house flies began invading homes in the picturesque villages of Collingbourne Ducis and Collingbourne Kingston on the edge of Salisbury Plain at the end of last month.
Residents claim that they have to sweep up piles of dead flies every morning. Local shops have sold out of fly spray and fly paper. The villages also suffered invasions of house flies in 2001 and 2003, but this summer is said to be the worst.
