Mounds of fish flies are piling up in the Manitoba town of Gimli where town workers are scooping them up with shovels, filling dozens of garbage bags at a time. Park patrol supervisor Gibby Finnbogason (fihn-BAHG'-ah-suhn) says the town on the shore of Lake Winnipeg is infested with the flies, which cling to any surface they can find from windows and cars to people's clothing. He says they only live for 24 hours and give off a terrible smell. (He says his crews have been out with shovels and brooms, filling 42 garbage bags in one day with the critters.)
