Flies in Your Kitchen? What You Need to Know

If you’ve noticed a sudden influx of flies in your kitchen, it’s natural to assume the worst. After all, where there are flies, there are usually maggots, right? Not necessarily. While flies and maggots are often found together, they’re not always an indication of an infestation. In this article, we’ll explore the relationship between flies and maggots and what you need to know if you have either in your kitchen.

The Nurse and her Pets

In a decrepit hospital on the outskirts of town, Nurse Evelyn scurried through the dimly lit halls, her shoes squeaking on the linoleum floors. Her eyes gleamed as she pushed her cart laden with glass jars filled with writhing maggots. She was a tall, austere woman with severe features and a tight-lipped smile that never reached her eyes. Her co-workers often remarked on her cold, detached demeanor, but they didn’t know the half of it.

One of the jars slipped from her grasp and shattered on the floor, releasing a mass of squirming maggots that crawled over the shards of broken glass. Evelyn stared at the wriggling creatures, her heart racing with anticipation. In this forsaken place, the maggots were her tools, her secret companions in a world of suffering and decay.


Ants vs Maggots

I HATE Ants!

Almost as much as I HATE maggots.

Of course, I don’t get maggots as often as I get ants, so that just means I have more opportunity to hate ants more often.

But the one time I can say I enjoy seeing the sight of ants is when I have maggots crawling out of a bin bag and the ants are attacking! It’s a fierce battle, and the maggots put up a decent fight. But their strength and tough outer shell is no match for the sheer numbers of ant warriors.

I feel like a Roman emperor, watching down on gladiators fighting in an arena. I don’t need to give a thumbs up or down. I just know that eventually the only ones standing with prizes carried proudly to their deep, dark dungeons will be the ant warriors.

And I can go, in peace, knowing that the maggots have been taken care of…

What do Maggots LOOK like?

We’re looking for your photos!

Please, take a photo of your situation and email it (or them) to:

There have been numerous people who have asked about the appearance of maggots, with questions such as “What do maggots look like?” and “Do you have any pictures of maggots?” To provide a comprehensive answer, I have collected several images from the internet. These pictures serve as a visual representation of what maggots look like, and I hope they will aid in answering any questions you may have about these creatures.

It is important to note that maggots are an essential component of many ecosystems. They are one of the primary decomposers of dead animals and plants, and thus play a vital role in the natural cycle of life. In addition, maggots have been used in medical settings for centuries to help clean wounds and remove dead tissue.

While maggots may not be the most pleasant creatures to look at, they are a fascinating and integral part of our world. By understanding their role in the environment and their potential uses in medicine, we can gain a greater appreciation for these often-misunderstood organisms.

So, without further ado, please view the photos of maggots below…


Maggots in my Wheelie Bin

Maggots Infestation in Wheelie Bins

Poor old England!

They’re having a MASSIVE heatwave, and now is the time that the government decides to only do the rubbish collection every 2 weeks instead of every week.

This is causing a severe outbreak of maggots in wheelie bins. (A wheelie bin is your big black rubbish bin outside, in case you didn’t know).

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. This is happening all over the world.

In fact, traffic to this site has DOUBLED compared to last year. Global warming is really giving people hell in their rubbish bins! 🙂
