Most Of Your Flies

and carrion eating maggots, won't touch healthy flesh. They can't - they're designed to eat rotting, dead flesh, that has been partially broken down by bacteria.

That said. It's most.

There's still a whole bunch of flies that will quite happily lay their eggs in the corner of your eyeball while you sleep in the sun. Or blowflies - they take no prisoners either.

And there's a nasty, vampiric, maggot/worm that lives in your African native hut. It will wait until you're asleep and the hump it's way across the floor - guided by your CO2 emissions, and latch onto the inside of your nose - thoughtfully injecting a local anaesthetic -and feast on you.

Ain't nature wonderful?

Congo floor maggot FTW!
See also the Tumbu fly (who is a blowfly himself, the delightful fellow) for a good reason to iron your laundry in certain bits of the world.
