Excerpt
The New World screwworm Cochliomyia hominivorax) was originally found infesting people in the penal colony of Devil's Island in French Guiana in 1858. Today, in tropical America, it causes significant human morbidity and, where medical services are poor, even mortality. Dramatic effects on mammalian wildlife have also been observed. In both North and South America it is well known as one of the most important insect pests of livestock.
