Sorry if this has been done before, I did see a thread on maggots in bins, but I wanted abit more advice.

My wheelie bin is supposed to be emptied every week, but last week, the bin men didnt empty it. Now I have loads of flies swarming all round my wheelie bin, and I imagine, probably loads of maggots, if I looked closer which I really dont want to do. sad

The bin men are supposed to come tomorrow, and somehow, I have got to pull my fly infested wheelie bin from it's resting place up my path to the road, and it is making me feel panicky and sick, just the thought of going near it.

Also, what do I do with the bags I cant fit into my wheelie bin, since it's now been 2 weeks since it was emptied?

My friend has told me that bin men can refuse to empty your bin if it has maggots in it. Is this true? Do I need to remove every binbag from my wheelie bin and scrub it out and get rid of the flies/maggots before they will empty it?

I even have the odd stray fly in my house now. sad

I am about to clean my house thoroughly, so as to prevent any more flies from wanting to reside in my humble abode, then I thought I would spray fly killer round the downstairs, just as I am on my way out with DD. I was going to leave her outside in the buggy while I spray the flyspray, then off to a friends this afternoon, but what else should I be doing, to deter flies from wanting to move in with me, and how do I deal with the bin? If I accidentally touch maggots, will they stick to me, and drop off in my house? I mean, what can flies and maggots really truly do to me if they touch me while I am moving my bin to the road?

Sorry if this all sounds rather silly to you, but I feel so sick at the thought of them. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. sad

Help please anyone???

Ok, little update. I have taken a closer look, intending on pulling the wheelie bin up the drive.

Yuk Yuk Yuk.

It is not flies at all.

It's fierce mean looking wasps!! Lots of them too. Argggghhhhhhhh!!!!

Will the binmen still collect??

do you think there might be a nest in there?
If so, ring the council and speak to someone in the refuse dept. I think it might be all right to sob on this occasion.

Thanks ohyoubadbadkitten

The binmen didnt collect it. It's sitting outside as we speak. I ran up the road after them, but they said it wasn't in the right position to collect it. hmm
