    beware of maggots.

    for us living in thailand i have come across a right fkin.pest,NO not the wife,but an indian meal moth,crawling on your floors,walls,ceilings and in your food cupboards.one eyed maggots that if not controlled will infest your kitchen and look for food.i dont know how they get into the kitchen as our doors and windows are always protected by mossy screens.the thought of them getting into any package of food has got me on red alert.checking every day,i got 3 this morning.their larvae is about an inch long like a maggot with wings.

    Be patient.
    Jinkjos, Tokays or Chooks [if you have 'em] will take care of this problem in short path.

    Let the business run it's course.
    As they're not toxic/harmful.


    Or....put your dry goods/sundry under refrigeration.
    Like most tropical weevil types, they don't take well to coolness.

    Many years ago while growing up in the UK I used to do a lot of coarse fishing and maggots were the main bait used.

    I used to keep a few bait boxes with different sized maggots (pinkies, squatts, etc) and all dyed different colours, in the fridge. I don't know why my long suffering parents put up with this as there were regular breakouts. You have to keep them in the fridge to slow down development into casters (chrysalises), although they were also good bait.

    One time my parents had friends staying who asked what all the plastic boxes were in the bottom of the fridge... and of course I took great joy in showing them.

    They also opened the freezer to find a bag of rabbit heads... I used to keep ferrets and kept the heads of any rabbits we caught for ferret food.

    My mum still mentions that those friends never visited again.

    there's the answer,since we banned jinchoks from the kitchen 2months ago,that is when they started to appear,so come back jinkies all is forgiven.
    fishing on cefn malby carp lake my mate always kept a pinki or two in his mouth for quick baiting.
