Distressing itchiness, a painful burning sensation, ugly blister patches on your skin, this is what you will experience if you fall victim of the Narrow Bee Fly. The narrow red and black insect is about 5-10mm long and has a very toxic and corrosive venom known as pederin. Any skin contact with this venom causes paederus dermatitis, a skin irritation that begins as slight erythema and develops to severe skin blistering depending on concentration and extent of exposure.
Narrow Bee Fly is a species of the rove beetle genus paederus. They dwell in rooting leaves where they lay their eggs and breed. Heavy rains provide a conducive environment for this beetles to survive and increase. If you cross paths, they will neither bite nor sting you. Crushing the insect against the skin causes the release of its toxin, often at night when one heedlessly brushes the insect from his or her face.
Avoid skin irritation by gently brushing the insect off your skin or directly blowing it off.
Narrow Bee flies cause so much discomfort to their unfortunate victims. Below are the risks posed when a person's skin comes into contact with their venom:
When Pederin gets into contact with your skin, you may not experience any signs or symptoms for the first 24 hours of irritation. However, soon after this period, you may show the following symptoms:
Like very many other flies, Narrow Bee flies are attracted to fluorescent lights. As soon as the lights go off, they will crawl and find their way into a victim's bed when he or she is fast asleep. Naturally, you'll want to crush it, and this will only lead to the release of the toxic pederin.
The toxin produced by these insects is worse than that of a cobra's venom. Their mere sight is enough to make an adults blood run cold. They do not bite nor sting, but once their toxin has come into contact with your skin, you will be devastated by the damage that will result. You will develop severe itching and an unbearable burning sensation. As if that's not enough discomfort, you are also at the risk of getting ugly blisters, and in severe cases, the affected area might develop a secondary bacterial infection. The bacterial infection appears like a skin infection that causes dark patches.
To be completely safe, you should avoid any contact with these insects. If Narrow Bee Flies have infested your home, you should call a licensed professional who will eliminate them and ensure no chances of future re-infestation.
