How to Get Rid of Maggots on Towels

Save

Maggots are the larvae of flies. When the weather warms up and flies breed, they will lay their eggs in any damp, warm area, including a damp towel. When the fly eggs hatch, the maggots appear like a living carpet of white pests. Fortunately, you can get rid of maggots quickly and safely without using harsh chemicals.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 or 2 gallon bucket
  • 1 or 2 gallon pot

Place the maggot-covered towel in a tall, heat-resistant bucket.

Bring 1 to 2 gallons of water to a rolling boil on your stove.

Pour the boiling water into the bucket over the maggot-covered towel. The maggots will die instantly in the boiling water.
