I found a lot of info on "creeping eruption" (I knew some guys that suffered from that...) which is the "migrans" you wrote about. I don't recommend reading it over your morning java and donuts, unless you have a strong stomach, work in healthcare, or are just sick and twisted! smile

Hey, no problem brudda ! Read on this on this link about the warble fly, or the Beef-flies called in Belize : http://www.1upinfo.com/encyclopedia/B/botfly.html it is interesting. San pedro, has no real livestock, nor large amount of wild deer, so there is no real high risk of getting this sci-fi fly pest. Again, the Belizean gov., has fought against this pest, and winning. Later, mel......

If you must choose between two evils, pick the one you've never tried before.

While south of Belmopan we ran into someone with Bot Fly. It is a raised spot on the skin and itches a lot. They say if you sufficate it then it dies. You can put clear nail polish on the area.
To Maya10 who first started this post: You are hearing all the bad bugs. Most people have no problems,especially in San Pedro. You'll love it.

Oh, don't worry- a few rashes and parasites won't stop us! I just want to be prepared, and well-armed if necessary. 95% DEET scares me worse than the bugs! Sounds like you could use it to strip floors. Eek!

Just curious-what kind of effect do you get if you combine Bellikins or Rum Punch and Benadryl? confused

I've heard a couple of the ladies on here complain about land shark bites. I don't know what kind of repellant you need for that one.
