Nasal Bots/Cuterebra

Nasal bot flies

 
  • Bot fly deposits larvae in nostrils, then attach and grow in cluster in throat near the base of tongue. 
  • Sneezed out in the spring. 
  • Cuterebra primarily affect rodents and squirrels, but can infect many mammalian species. 
  • Not typically a problem, but are quite large and can interfere with movement.
