Bot Fly Warning

Postby Joan » Fri Oct 17, 2014 10:34 am

If your flyer ever gets a bot fly larva, get it to a vet for removal. Trying to remove the worm yourself can cause it to repture which is NOT good. In the wild, bot larva eventually emerge from gray squirrels, but leave large, open wounds. In flyers, this can be fatal.
