This is going to totally be a Viewer Discretion advised kinda thing. Seriously, viewer discretion advised.
It all started one late night when I couldn’t sleep so I was surfing around on YouTube, just letting the winds of the Related Videos Algorithm take me anywhere it wanted to go, and before I knew it I was in a deep black pit of Botfly removal videos.
For those that don’t know, as I did not at the time, a Botfly, “also known as a warble fly, heel fly and gadfly, is from the family of flies technically known as Oestridae. Their larvae are internal parasites of mammals, some species growing in the host’s flesh and others within the gut. The Dermatobia hominis is the only species of botfly known to parasitize humans routinely, though other species of flies cause myiasis in humans.”
I have not slept well since. Every time I close my eyes at night I see fleshly lumps with a gaping ma, excreting foul fluid.
So, I thought it was best not to deal with this fear alone anymore. Here are my Top 5 Least Favorite Botfly Removal Videos that I have watched repeatedly in disgust.
Welcome to my nightmare:
Botfly on Woman’s Belly
Let’s start out easy, with a simple extraction of a little Botfly larva on a woman’s upper belly.
Guy Has Botfly on Top of Head
This will take us a little further down the hole, because this little sucker is not that little.
Guy Has Botfly on Face
This dude is my hero because he deals with his Botfly like a real man – with pliers and an endless stream of profanity.
Woman with Multiple Botflies
This is probably the most satisfying of the videos I have seen, if there can be such a thing. This lady has multiple Botflies removed from her upper arm and keeps a cheerful mood throughout.
Missive Botfly Infestation on Monkey
This was one of the absolute toughest ones to sit through. This poor monkey is heavily infested and the person doing the extractor just works systematically through them all. Disgusting
And as a treat to set you off on your own Botfly Removal Video journey, here is a big compilation video to make sure you take full responsibility for your actions if you decide to continue on.
