A Chicago Burger King has been shut down after inspectors say they were so many flies in the fast food restaurant that they were "afraid to open their mouths," reports MyFoxChicago.com

The South Side Burger King reportedly had more than 200 flying insects of various types that were found on the walls, ceilings, clean dish shelving, sink, food storage area, dry storage area, on the tubing of boxes of soft drink syrup, and in front of the drive-up window.

Officials shut down the eatery Tuesday.

"Pest control was woefully inadequate and poor housekeeping fueled the infestation of flying insects at the Burger King near 95th and Ashland," said Josie Cruz, deputy commissioner of Street & Sanitation's Bureau of Rodent Control.
