Part of my Ph. D involves growing up wax moth larvae (Galleria mellonella) to infect them with bacteria.
Every time I grow these guys up and sort through them for infections, I just see things wiggling everywhere. I close my eyes, I can see larvae wiggling. I eat dinner, I see wiggling…
I wonder if there’s a PTSD club for this? 😂
