Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said drastic measures were being taken as the state had been having massive problem with flies.

“The people cannot be made to suffer at the expense of others who make big profits out of poultry farming," he said after chairing the exco meeting on Wednesday.

Mohamad said the state had more than enough poultry farms and there was no need for more.

"We are already exporting chicken and eggs. We want our people to have a good quality life and not be bothered by flies," he said adding that the problem had reached critical levels.

Mohamad said some of the areas hard hit by flies infestation were Port Dickson, Rembau, Tampin and Seremban.
