Information on Maggot Removal Sydney

You can easily recognize maggots by their white and creamy body appearance.
So, the slender end that narrows to a point is the head while the blunt and thick end is the rear.

Their hook-like mouthparts are the only visible part of the head of these flies. On the other hand, the rear end of the maggot has two kidney bean-shaped patterns on the end. Hence, the small openings are their spiracles they use for breathing. Apparently, these are designed to eat dead tissue!

The Life of Maggots Sydney

During the warmer months, the fly breeds in large numbers. Flies possess special sensory cells on their antennae and feet. Specifically, these allow them to identify suitable food and potential breeding ground.

The sensory cells help the fly detect ammonia, carbon dioxide and other compounds that decaying flesh and faeces release. Therefore, maggot worms will only exist if the adult fly has found access to the food source, commonly in your rubbish.

The adult fly lays eggs, usually in a rotting and moist environment, like food! Eventually, their eggs hatch within 24 hours and begin to feed on the food. Thus, this is the main feeding stage of the fly.

The larvae are 2 mm in length and continue to grow until they reach about 15mm. In addition, these pests generally move in a straight direction away from the food source during post feeding stage.

If you see them, it is safe to assume that expired food or dead animal is nearby. Moreover, their numbers are a good indicator of the number of food sources.

Be sure to observe the direction that they are coming from. Particularly, keep in mind that maggot worms can travel quite a distance from their food sources So, don’t be discouraged if you don't find the source. Most importantly, if you do find the food source, ensure you wear gloves to avoid any infections or disease.
