I won't read the OP, because I know of an incident similar to this, that I just recently got out of my damn head...I don't need the pictures. Damn heebie-jeebies!

I wonder if botfly is the same as Mango-fly that we get here in Africa.Uuuuu-Huuugh..my fox terriers got it one year,the oldest(who has since passed on) had these tunnels going into her skin,well thats what it looked like.Our neighbour sqeezed these larvae or pupa-looking things out of the holes.Said one has to be careful how you take them out,luckily he had experience of that,so it saved an expensive trip to the vet.It was'nt a sight i care to see again.Nasty,just nasty.

I heard that clark zappers and other electronic devices (like TENS UNITS) can eliminate these infections.

Somebody suggest that spark generator piezo thingy could also be used.

Damnit....They were the same things....Thanks for putting that nasty image back into my memory >.> I could have gone the rest of my life, never seeing or hearing about these things again.

I just caught the tail end of one of those science shows and they were talking about a particular species of bot fly that apparently loves to lay their eggs in fire ants... apparently some genius somewhere figured they would introduce another species to fight the other invasive one we introduced.

I'd rather have the fire ants personally, the idea of pulling maggots out of my skin from time to time is not my idea of effective erradication. Let's see, a box of borax, or subcutaneus maggots... hmmm.

Hygiene, people, hygiene. So rare you're more prone to dying in your car today.
