I watched a program on tv last week. Botfly com from mosqitos. The larva live on them and when they feed the larva jump off and into the hole that the mosqito made. I did not know this. So watch out for the mosqitos.

bot fly that attacks rabbits and bot flys that attack squirrels and bot flys that attack deer and i think in south america ... ? probably the amazon .. there is a bot fly that attacks humans...

i think the bot flies all prefer which ever species they prefer ... meaning that you wouldn't catch a squirrel botfly etc..

still very, very interesting and no need for halloween ghost stories these guys are frightening and revolting enough ...:D

he story on tv was about a human in SA that got it from a mosquito. SO they must be other ways to get them as well.:shakehead
