A year or so ago on the Discovery channel there was a man who was backpacking in central or southern America and somehow got a worm or larva in the skin of his belly. Apparently it grew and grew for months and there was a noticeable bump on the surface of the skin where this grub was. I guess this type of larva comes to the surface of it's host maybe once a day or so then goes back under the skin making it hard to capture. He wanted to get it out alive and so he put a steak over the insect and it crawled through his skin up through the steak and he was able to capture it.
