Loodal Farm Inspection Report

Loodal Farm Inspection Report

The Parish Clerk has received the following update from the Environmental Health Officer responsible for monitoring at Loodal Farm:

I am writing to update you as to our monitoring this spring that started in April.
Until just over 2 weeks ago there were no maggots or flies in either of the chicken sheds.
The manure had a preventative treatment  applied on the 21st May as a precaution.
Unfortunately on my visit yesterday a large number of maggots were found, which was wholly unexpected given the fly free conditions previously found and the treatment applied.
Treatments are being applied today but I expect residents will notice an increase in houseflies.
We will be closely monitoring the situation and update you accordingly
Yours sincerely
