“SOMETIMES when we put fruits and vegetables on our dining table, it’s possible that after the larvae have incubated for a while that they might crawl around and then look for some new food and new environment,” writes Taiwan Dr. Shi Cheng-pien in the New England Journal of Medicine.
“They could have climbed into the hearing aid. So this woman put the hearing aid into her ear, carrying the larvae with it. As a result, this hearing aid became a carrier to bring the larvae into her ear.”
That’s one theory. We’d go with the small-voiced larvae making a bid to communicate with humankind.
