Carmarthenshire County Council’s says its environmental health team has handed over responsibility over the source of Llanelli’s fly infestation to Natural Resources Wales (NRW).
NRW is the enforcing authority over the recycling plant in Seaside which was identified last week as the most likely source of the infestation.
Since June 5 the council’s environmental health team has undertaken 256 visits and responded to 28 urgent referrals regarding pest control.
They worked with independent pest control experts to trace the source to the recycling plant.
Over the weekend, before handing over to NRW, the team supervised the first insecticide treatments of the site and removal of some waste.
The council says its waste team have carried out daily bin collections and have increased patrols of the area as a precaution and will continue for the foreseeable future.
