SCP-XXXX instance after initial containment.

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: Instances of SCP-XXXX are to be kept in standard insect containment cases at Site-104. Individuals entering the containment area of SCP-XXXX when the instances are released should wear at least one layer of protective clothing to avoid infection by SCP-XXXX instances. Permission for testing SCP-XXXX should be given by at least two personnel of Level Three up1. From the months of April to August one sufficiently sized mammal is to be placed in the containment cell of the SCP-XXXX instances, preferably a small rodent, and all SCP-XXXX instances are to be allowed to infect the animal.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a group of four members of the Hypoderma Bovis, aka Warble fly species, each instance designated SCP-XXXX-1 to SCP-XXX-4. Instances of SCP-XXXX emit intermittent speech in the form of singular words with seemingly no meaning, despite possessing no anatomical ability to do so. All attempts to communicate with SCP-XXXX instances have failed. Instances of SCP-XXXX will attempt to insert their larvae into human hosts in periods corresponding to regular Warble fly hatching seasons. The larvae of SCP-XXXX (referred to as SCP-XXXX-A) when injected into a human host will navigate through the host into the brain.

Hosts for SCP-XXXX-A instances report hearing auditory hallucinations in the form of speech; these range from random words, consistent with original SCP-XXXX instances, up to words corresponding to the host's current or recent thoughts. Occasionally the speech can arrange into sentences, sometimes random and sometimes corresponding to the hosts memories. Host's reactions to these voices often drive the infected to states of madness or inhibit high levels of depression. Most subjects react with negative emotions over time until the larvae are removed or the instance is fully developed and leaves the host's body. These voices are presumed to originate from the SCP-XXXX-A instances.

Once SCP-XXXX-A instances have fully developed they move to the original area of their placement into the host and navigate outwards. Once instances of SCP-XXXX-A leave the host body they develop the same speech consistent with that of SCP-XXXX instances along with strung-together sentences, mostly relating to the host's memories or thoughts. Previous hosts of SCP-XXXX-A instances that come in contact with the instance with which they were infected respond with many different emotions. these reactions are seemingly based on the connotation the host has with the memories the SCP-XXXX-A instances communicate, with positive emotions at happy memories, and negative emotions at sad ones. All SCP-XXXX-A instances expire after 24 hours.

During the months of April to August, traditional hatching times for Warble flies, SCP-XXXX instances enter a state of despair if not given a suitable host for their larvae. This often manifests in SCP-XXXX instances banging against the walls of their containment or flying around erratically in them. Due to potential injury that SCP-XXXX instances could inflict on themselves in their state of disarray they should be monitored by camera constantly through the months of April to August.2.

Addendum XXXX-A: test log XXXX-1

The following are interviews between D-17032, a Hispanic male convicted of homicide on ██/██/20██, and Dr. Adams over several days after D-17032's infection by SCP-XXXX-2

Addendum XXXX-B: Incident report XXXX-1
On the date ██/██/20██ subject D-14431, a previous host of an SCP-XXXX-A instance was introduced to the instance itself, D-14431 is a Caucasian male sent to the SCP Foundation after killing his mother on ██/██/ 20██, test described below.
D-14431 was lead to the testing site and sat on one end of the table, a box containing the SCP-XXXX-A instance was brought in and placed on the table with enough air holes for any speech to be audible. The SCP-XXXX-A instance began to speak with many different random words. D-14431 showed signs of disgust towards the instance and looked away for approximately one minute. The SCP-XXXX-A instance followed with a series of strewn-together sentences which are as follows.

6:49 p.m. There is nothing to do about it now.

D-14431 seemingly stops attempts to ignore the instance and stats to stare at it

6:52 p.m. Keep going we need to hide.

The instance stares directly at D-14431 and continues

6:52 p.m. C'mon hurry up!

D-14431 sits up and asks for testing to stop. requests are denied

6:53 p.m. They're catching up!

Following the series of events D-14431 stood up and smashed the box containing the SCP with enough force to kill the SCP-XXXX-A instance inside. The corpse of the SCP-XXXX-A instance let out a series of words, indistinguishable from each other and seemingly being said all at once, at 6:54 p.m. the sound exceeded 18,000 Hz; all staff were evacuated from the room and the noises stopped at 6:56 p.m. staff exposed to the sounds were noted as having increased hysteria, depression, erratic movements, nausea, and inconsistent sleeping habits for weeks afterward. ██% of staff experienced decay in the [REDACTED] area of the brain after █ days.

Note: Due to this event the Foundation has found it necessary that D-class be restrained when testing on SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-A instances; permission for testing SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-A instances now must be authorized by at least two Level Four personnel.
