Bot fly

Asked May 31, 2018, 9:05 PM EDT

Here's an odd question while I know the boy fly is not to my knowledge indigenous to Kentucky but my mother does have a bug moving in her arm. I put stuff on it to smoother it and try and get it to poke out.. but it only comes out about a mm if that... I try to grab it gently with tweezers to no avail.. could this be a bot fly or am I dealing with something out of my knowledge.. sheet thought at first it was possibly a deer tick... HowvHow it's all the way in her skin and I can't see and she didn't actually see the tick she just guess... Now this thing is big enough she feels it moving... Thoughts?
