Thanks for the flies that come with bin

Please pass on my thanks to our district councils for introducing grey, plastic food waste bins.

If there’s one thing I love, it’s chasing bluebottles, so you can imagine how pleased I was when people were urged to put food waste in their recycling bins for flies and bluebottles to lay their eggs in.

In this day and age, with healthy living so important, it’s heartening to hear of local authorities who are prepared to ignore an obvious public health risk just to keep me entertained.

Until the grey bins arrived I led a quiet life flywise, now I don’t seem to get a spare moment. I’d say more but a huge ‘bottle has just come through the window. Must go.
