Default Re: Maggots in Microworm culture?

I think the sals would eat maggots too if they are not too big. In the future you can put a small piece of sponge through the airholes to prevent flies from getting in and laying eggs.
You can start a new culture from them, just remove some worms and start one. I don't think they are "contaminated" any more than any other creature living in soil with god knows what kind of variety of bacteria and microorganisms.
Also, maggots that I know only eat dead flesh, so I wouldn't worry about the eating your microworms. But that is just conjecture from the maggots I have known. Which will be the title of my autobiography, "Maggots I have Known."
