“In the year 1912, the W.V.I.A. [Women’s Village Improvement Association] began an active campaign for the extermination of the house fly pest. At the suggestion of the Association, manure heaps were removed or covered. A gross of the approved type of fly trap was bought and these were sold and distributed over the village. This was followed later by a report from Dr. H.B. Wright, the health officer, on the good results from this campaign.”
