Description: insects can harm amphibians by sucking blood, carry various pathogenic microorganisms, have a direct damaging effect, destroying the host organism with the help of proteolytic enzymes.
The frog-eating fly (Lucilia bufonivora) lays eggs in the nasal passages of amphibians (most often toads). After hatching, fly larvae feed on amphibian tissues, destroying them. First, the epithelium is affected, then the tissues lying deeper.
Reasons: Insect invasion of containers where amphibians are kept.
Symptoms: Visible bite sites, especially around the head.
Treatment: wounds (insect bites) are treated with warm baths with antiseptics, followed by dusting with iodoform. With suppuration, antibiotics or drugs based on them are used (exuter, mepatar, etc.). Insect larvae are removed manually with tweezers, then the wounds are washed with sulfonamidomide or powdered antibiotic such as Cicatrin and disinfected.
