Excerpt from Monthly Cyclopaedia and Medical Bulletin, 1908, Vol. 22: Consolidated
IN a summary report by Dr. Hamer, of the London County Council, on the ﬂy nuisance, according to his investigation, he concludes that the most productive of all factors in the ﬂy genesis are accumulations of horse manure; but all collections of dust and other refuse act as breeding grounds, though less actively, and promote ﬂy nuisance in their neighborhood. He observed that such refuse placed over two hundred yards away from dwellings, distinctly inﬂuences the number of ﬂies that may haunt the houses.
His investigations also clearly and scientifically corroborated the common belief that children, dirty walls and ceilings, particles of food on the ﬂoor and in the sinks, are particularly congenial to ﬂies and inﬂuences them to haunt such places.
