Lynora and any other professional bodies out there.
Hopalong and myself were speaking yesterday and today regarding insect bites etc., etc., she has been bitten by something during the night and is rightfully so watching for any change in her leg (cellulitis). I have a little problem myself and hope it does not happen, but in my wet room behind the tiles is a massive flying ants nest. I have just had a new Altro floor laid and the floor layer pointed it out to us (husband and me). I contacted our local council and they refused to investigate, and environmental health said it was not a health matter!!
This is what I would like to ask, are insects and flying ants a health risk? I know they have a nasty sting and suppose could lead to infection (cellulitis) in people like us.
Really would appreciate any views or happenings, because if a sting or bite leads to cellulitis should Environmental Health be aware of this and add it to their list of nasties?
Many, many thanks for any views on this,
