Do you see flies in your house? If yes, then you need to be aware because flies have many types and some can harm you more than you could ever think of.
Read below to find out what a fly did to a human being like you and me.
Ever heard about botflies? Well, botflies belong to the Oestridae family of flies. It is commonly known by Warble fly and Heel fly. Normally, they lay their eggs on animals like dogs and horses. Once the larvae are out of their eggs they grow on their host.
In some very rare cases, these flies lay eggs on humans and this is what happened with this guy. In the beginning, he thought that he had been stung by a fly or something or it was just a pimple.
It was when the guy consulted experts he came to know about the Botfly. Experts immediately realized that it was something different and serious. They had to use tweezers to pull it out.
This happened to a guy in the U.S.A and not in some Amazon rainforest. If it happened there, it means the same can happen to any of us.
Thankfully, in the end the larvae was taken out and the guy was safe.
