 Maggots

Iím not sure if they came in with my crickets, as I have seen maggots in with orders before, or if they were laid in there afterwards but my bucket is crawling with maggots. They are eating off the dead bodies so I havnít dumped them out yet. Iím in central texas. Anyone have a guess of what they are? Wondered if they turned into some feeder foods. Thanks

 Maggots

they could be woolie worms which are the larvae of the dermistid beatle (which is a known pest of cricket colonies) i have used the wollie worms as feeders to many different species, but then again they look nothing like true maggots (which are good feeders to if they are clean)
