If you decide to squeeze a wolf worm

podcast,pod cast,erik johnson podcast
A wolf worm or botfly is a fly larva that gets under the skin. It creates a bump, with a small juicy pore in the middle of it. If you stare at it you will see the wolf worm breathing through the pore in the skin. If you decide to break this, you have to go very deep underneath the worm. It may take considerable pressure. It would be better to use the services of an experienced veterinarian.
