What? How does maggots get in to a slead container.
06-11-2007 03:57 PM
Use a blender. It's just like oats and more protein.

The protein is in the kitchen, about once every 2 month there will be about 20-50 maggots in the backyard trying to make it into the house but they never seem to be able to get over the door rail. I dont know where they come from but they cant be killed, People make a list of what they have tried that works rather than what does work, I think I am gonna have to buy some chemicals on ebay or something.
I dont spot maggots anywhere else in my house except for on my protein powder, and there alive and just sit there snug, I dont know if they hatched there or are ready to turn into a fly.

They dont make it in, there always as far as they can go. right on the sealable part of the 10lb doggy bag(if I was to open it there would be a good chance of it falling into the protein, which is why id ont buy the 10lb anymore). Or on the bottom edge inside of the lid but outside of the tub, I would take a photo but I cbf.

Where do you live that there is a maggot problem? I don't know about anyone else, but if I had a maggot problem around my house, I would move, or find a better place to hide the bodies.

I live in Sydney, maggot problem is nothing, we got redbacks here EVERYWHERE.
LOL extra protein with hepatitis too.
06-11-2007 04:29 PM
Wow, I have no idea what a redback even is, the maggots are enough for me, I won't even use drinking fountains because of germs.

What's a redback?
edit: nevermind. Nasty spiders. I hate spiders. (hate = scared to death)

They have a food source somewhere near your house where they are hatching. Flies lay eggs inside of rotting meat of near another source then the maggots travel to an environment where they can turn into flies. eliminate the food source eliminate the maggots. They grew in my garbage can once when we missed trash day in in less than two weeks they were crawling from the can to get in my house. i put some gasoline in the can and fk'ed them up good, not much just enought to mess with em. They could be in your walls if there is a food source in there (dead rodent or something) usually the garbage tho.

Life Cycle: Female flies lay numbers of eggs in suitable larval food sources such as decomposing food in garbage, animal excrement or other decomposing organic materials. Eggs hatch within a day into small maggots. Within a week, maggots grow and develop through three stages (instars) before they inflate their last larval skin into a puparium (pupa). After 4 to 6 days, adult flies emerge. Development from egg to adult can be completed in about 8 days under optimal conditions, and 12 generations can occur each summer. Adults normally live up to 25 days but may overwinter.
Habitat and Food Source(s): Adult flies have sponging-sucking mouthparts, with which they inject mainly liquid food or food dissolved with regurgitated saliva. Larvae have mouthparts (mandibles) used to tease apart decomposing organic materials. Larvae feed with the ends of the bodies bearing the breathing pores on the surface and their narrow heads imbedded deep in the food source. Just before completing larval development, they leave their food source in search of a dryer place to pupate. This is the time many larval infestations become noticeable. Large numbers of house flies can develop in poultry houses and around barns and feed lots where animal excrement accumulates. House flies developing there can fly to nearby homes and become an nuisance. Around the home, house flies can develop in garbage and piles of fermenting lawn clippings.
Pest Status: Larvae infest soils high in organic matter and injure seeds and seedlings, particularly during cool, wet spring growing conditions; medically harmless.

Im declaring biological warfare on my backyard again, last time I wiped out the ants(probly made maggot problem worse) This time its the maggots, too bad every best control person says its a bad idea to try wipe out the redbacks(Cause then they come inside the house).
My 2 choices are
PERMETHRIN (mosquito repellent and insecticide)
ETHYL CHLORIDE (skin numbing/cooling spray, also available via prescription from your doctor lol)
Ebay for the win.

Killing the flies around your house will limit how many flies are laying eggs causing future maggot problems. My suggestions flyswatter and fly tape, for safety reasons. When the maggots in your house hatch they will be very dumb flies, they dont really move much and they are easy kills, this is a good time to make a dent on the population.

We got heaps of stuff to kill flies here. Bin-Kill is one of them, as soon as you open it you get a buzz off the fumes, you put it in the garbage bin and it makes it a dutch oven sort of thing so the flies go in there and die, lasts 3 months. Then we got stickers to put on walls and windows which attract flies, the flies land on it try eat the stuff and fly off then die, but it never helped with the maggot situation, I think I am gonna put up a barrier on the ground to keep them out, and try find out where there coming from, cause its not the bin.
