I often hear about this "The flies gets to me", what does it mean? As far as I reckon this is British slang.

    "Gets" looks like an error: I would expect "get to me". – Colin Fine Feb 20 '17 at 12:43

It's not really a slang, "get to" is a phrasal verb

get to phrasal verb of get

  1. annoy or upset (someone) by persistent action.

Thus, the sentence means the flies annoy you.
