We give the name “Bod” to all kinds of flies and bees. Bod that go around eating the pollen from flowers (that others call “bees”), they make honey that we eat. But the different Bod (“flies”), they keep biting and eating our eyes until our eyes swell up. We go into the monsoon forests and see many different kinds of flies, that live in those big monsoon forests
