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.
