Explosion of Flies

I've lived here 24 years and never been bothered by flies - until the week. Have I been neglecting my cleaning regime? Not that I was aware of. So I asked the questions and found out that everyone else has them too - a breed of houseflies that are kitchen specialists.

They won't keep you awake by drumming against the bedroom window but knowing they're taking over your kitchen is a nightmare....

Investigations are indicating that the outbreak is confined to Euxton mostly near the peripheral of certain fields, as one might expect. But why have I never had this problem before?

Refusing to have splattered stains all over the place I'm opting for something better - preventative. I'm leaving an apple spiked with cloves in the kitchen. I'll let you know how it goes.
