This Is Why It Hurts So Much To Get Bitten By A Horsefly

Mike is ViralNova's resident Editor of the Weird. If it makes you say "OMG! That's terrible!!!" then Mike probably wrote it. Despite the subject of his articles Mike is surprisingly well adjusted. When he's not writing, he's making music, performing, and producing podcasts.

We all know that horsefly bites are terrible. We usually encounter horseflies on the beach, but these nasty things are everywhere. Only female horseflies bite, since consuming blood helps them lay their eggs.

Think that sounds bad? Wait until you see a horsefly in action in this close-up video.

I'm getting flashbacks...

I feel itchy just watching that. Ugh, I hate bugs. I wish I could just close myself off forever so I'd never have to see them again.
