hi all im trying to find out if maggots in wheelie bins are a big problem.i had a major problem last year so i came up with a very cheap,100% effective idea that will stop the need for bleach,boliling water,double bagging,salt,etc.if anyone would comment on this it would be much basically trying to find out if its worth me selling my product or just using it myself.any comments good or bad are fine. thanks all

nope, but I had them in the kitchen bin. Would it work for that?

Never had maggots in any of my bins.

<< thinks I'd better check just in case ...>>

Now if your thinking of selling something that gets rid of carrot fly on your carrots I'm interested !

In a few months we are going to weekly collection of food that we have to keep in a caddy and we won’t be allowed to wrap the meat in plastic I’m worrying about maggots in the summer already, yuk.

So yes sounds good….have you done a survey yet on survey monkey? My friend did it and asked all her facebook friends…

We have a weekly collection for food waste. We have a large wheelie bin and a small caddy by the kitchen door. We get maggots quite a lot.
We can't do anything apart from boiling water, as it is all recycled and we would be fined by the council if anything else was used. What is your idea?
