Dangers of Bot Flies
Beware of the Bot Fly
They’re real creepy and they are awfully crawly. What’s more, they usually live within you for a long time (would you believe six weeks) and they need not to pay any rent for that. To illustrate, Human bot flies are a particular type of organism burrowing their way on mammals. These flies literally feed off of these mammals till they grow enough to fly. Sounds like you have every reason to be afraid of a bot fly. Technically speaking, mama bot flies can tackle a mosquito mid flight. They just lay their eggs onto the underbelly of these mosquitoes. They literally glue up their eggs there. When any of these mosquito land on the body of any mammal, the natural body heat actually melts down the glue. This is when a baby bot fly starts to crawl out from the egg and literally tunnels on the host mammal’s skin. That explains why some people have fear of holes in skin. It looks pretty much like normal bug bites at the first sight. However, after that it becomes huge and very painful. Don’t take our word for it… just go to youtube and look up the much viewed video titled as “three bot flies for the price of one.” Hopefully you will not be at all disappointed. While this is a fact, there are many people out there who have trypophobia. They are not afraid of all sorts of holes, actually. They just are afraid of the little holes that are found in asymmetric clusters, oftentimes with certain kinds of things in them. It could be simply a lotus seed pod. Today, a large number of people has it. Trypophobia is the kind of fear, that makes you feel totally uncomfortable and perhaps a bit creepy and you feel that something itchy is crawls over your body. According to experts, there are 4 types of holes that people fear when they are trypophobe. The first one is about Flesh. There are holes occurring in various kinds of tissues – who could be human or animal. It’s a pretty huge category. Human pores onto the skin, when enlarged, blackheads, can seem like pockmarks that are left by acne and/or other skin discrepancies. You will start imagining that there could be holes in your skin that are caused by different types of creatures, which might have actually eaten through the skin by creating the hole. If someone has Food Trypophobia, he might feel uneasy even at the sight of cheese holes. They might seem like honeycomb. In the same way, there are
Flora Trypophobia, Burrowing Trypophobia or even Geological Trypophobia. So whenever you find holes in anything spare your thought for the 1000s out there who are suffering from trypophobia. And try to educate yourself about the latest findings of science as there’s nothing great like staying informed. For instance, many people don’t know the fact that a feminine mature bot fly lays up to 1000 eggs within her very short life span.
