    Recently, flatworms that are not native to Barbados have been showing up. Particularly since the heavy rains began in 2020.

    Some of these species are invasive and potentially harbor parasites that can infect people so a small team including Darren Browne and myself are hoping to determine how widespread they are on the island. Have you seen these around the house recently?

    If you have, please let us know where and send a photo with a common item or ruler included for scale.

    Darren and I can be reached through Facebook or email at dennis.blades@mycavehill.uwi.edu or darren.browne@cavehill.uwi.edu.
