    Default Cuterebra emasculator - The Squirrel Bot Fly

    So as I plan my strategy in dealing with an infestation of Bot Fly in two of my squirrels, Sweet Pea and Calvin, I had to do some research. I love bugs, but these little buggers are pushing it!

    Cuterebra emasculator? Really? That name sounds terrible indeed!

    Originally they thought that the maggots at the Squirrel's testicles, but it's apparently not true. Yeesh!
