Summary, etc.:
There's no way around it, botflies are super gross. These winged insects start as larvae that need a host to live, and sometimes that host is human. Readers learn how these maggots live their parasitic lives with the help of some hosts that certainly don't appreciate their company. With full-color photographs showing these gross creatures up close and personal, readers will enjoy, or maybe revile, these creatures at work, laying eggs that become the next larvae burrowing into flesh before they become full-grown botflies.
