Spreading in the heart of Europe, horseflies are literally wreaking havoc on England. The population of this creature, whose bites cause unbearable pain, has experienced an unexpected explosion and everyone is complaining about this situation.
BITES SPREAD SERIOUS DISEASES
Horsefly bites are incredibly painful and can cause symptoms such as sudden fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, joint pain, dry cough, progressive weakness and pneumonia. They can also cause a condition known as “rabbit fever” or “tularemia.”
THEIR MOUTHS LIKE A SAW
The bite of one of these pesky flies is so powerful that they are capable of piercing a horse’s skin with their “saw-like” mouth. Although horseflies usually target larger, darker-colored animals such as horses and cows, humans are not safe from bites either.
THEY ARE VERY COMMON IN TURKEY
Horse flies, which especially like to be around cattle, are densely found in Turkey’s Elazığ, Erzincan , Erzurum , Malatya, Tunceli, Kars, Iğdır, Ardahan, Van, Bingöl, Bitlis, Ağrı and Muş provinces.
IF IT PUT FLESH FROM YOUR SKIN…”
Speaking on the subject, an expert warned about the symptoms if a horsefly bites a piece of your skin and what to do to treat it. “Symptoms of a horsefly bite may include a raised, painful red area, spots or rashes, and pain or itching around the bite or tear. Clean the area and apply antiseptic cream to the wound, if your pharmacist recommends it.”
INFECTION MAY OCCUR
Although bites normally heal on their own, they can sometimes become infected and cause more problems. John warned that if you experience symptoms such as dizziness, weakness, wheezing, or swelling anywhere in the body, it could be a sign of an infection or serious reaction.
“THEY SPREAD RABBIT FEVER”
He added: “In rare cases, horseflies can transmit a disease to humans known as ‘rabbit fever’. If you develop other signs of infection, such as pus or something that looks like a large blister, you should seek medical attention. “
