I have made a squirrel friend.
#1
She is amazingly sweet. I have mentioned her before. I named her Darlin. I think she is one of the baby squirrels I rescued from my dog a few years ago that were hiding in a rain gutter. She actually was the initiator of our friendly relationship when she was about a year old. I did not see her for over a year after our first season of her being very tame with me and was worried she might have been killed by a human who she may have approached but she found me earlier this year in the back yard as I was taking pics of new terracing I had completed next door..


ANYHOO...She clearly has a bot fly situation going on in her left shoulder.

Does anyone know if it is possible for me to treat her to help her get through it?

She comes to me like a puppy looking for a treat, so nabbing her would be easy.

Will she let you squeeze it out and put some hydrogen peroxide on it?

You're a lucky guy to get that close to one. Maybe you need a new nickname..."squirrel". Like the guy on the Hillbilly show that used to be on TV.

I don't know anything about Bot Flies but I love squirrels. I found a baby that had fallen out of it's nest and finished raising him. I don't see them as a nuisance at all.

I hope things work out well for Darlin.  Heartflowers

I vacationed in Belize one year and saw a bot fly in a man's eye but had no idea they are in the states.  Hiding3

Those things (squirrels) carry the plague where I live.

Not all of them of course.

I don't think I ever typed the word squirrel before. Took me a minute to figure it out.
