    They're actually pretty dangerous. They can inject their eggs easily through the skin, not just into the ear. There have been several cases in the UK of injection into the eye, followed by rupturing and blindness when they pupate. The most common areas are the hands though, since these are most often left exposed while sleeping. The first thing you'll notice will be swelling around the area of the intrusion and eventual rupturing out from the skin. It's surprisingly common.
