Are house flies dangerous?
« on: 17/07/2016 20:22:27 »
When I was a boy living in north London house flies were a great source of annoyance and possibly danger as they bred on the horse droppings that were common on the roads.
Now the horses are long gone and most of the flies with them do the few that remain carry any disease.
