myiasis, disease cause by paratisic dipterous fly larvae feeding on the host's necrotic or living tissue.it's known as sheep disease,and causing nearly $200 millions in losses of australian sheep breeding industry.it happens when a female fly lay their egg on the hosts,mainly on buttocks of the sheep,and within 8-20hours,maggots come to life,depending on the condition.the maggot live in hosts,and eat on hosts tissue.complication of this is bacterial infection,which may lead to septicemia(bacteria and toxin of bacteria accumulate in blood) and causing intoxication and damage of internal organ.myiasis can happen in human.so the best prevention is to keep your hygienic conditon all the time as best as you can.:-)
