Maggots found in bin and puppy might have eaten some?

So this morning I found my puppy keeps running over to the bin in the backyard where I dispose her poop(I always uses a doggy poo bag), so I was wondering why and walk up there to have a look, then I found maggots EVERYWHERE, it's inside the bin, outside, on the grass near the bin. Like omg it was so disgusting, the maggots weren't there yesterday when I threw her poop out, I don't know how all of the maggots got there in one night! I think my dog ate some aswell...

What shall I do to get rid of them? Do I need to take my puppy to vet?

No need to worry. The maggots won't survive your puppy's digestive system. No harm done. Gross but harmless.

Since she likes nosing around in the poop bin, you might want to make sure that worming is kept up to date.

Just gotta love those puppies!

Thanks! Yeah I have her on interceptor spectrum and frontline plus, I'm also planning to move the bin outside the gate so that she won't be able to reach it.
Anyone know how to get rid of those maggots in the yard(especially on grass) without harming the dog?

Mum sprayed almost a whole bottle of insect repellent inside the bin, and now all the maggots inside the bin have dropped to the bottom(dead I hope), and killed the maggots outside with gloves... (Ew). I'll wash out the bin after council cleaned the bin tomorrow.

As absolutely disgusting as maggots are, I'd be far more worried over your pup being exposed to insecticides than to the horrid little larva.

I found some maggots in my dog's food...anyway, asked the vet about it, and he said not to worry, that maggots wouldn't have harmed my dog even if he ingested them. So, I'm assuming that it would be the same with your puppy.Like my hubby says, those maggots are probably just like an extra protein/crunch to them.

Wait...under what conditions was this dog food, to have maggots in it?

If it was in the bag of kibble (and assuming the bag had not gotten damp/wet and was not kept outside), are you sure it wasn't larva from meal moths?

Food with grains in it can grow those.

It was a sealed bag of Earthborn Holistic food. It is a resealable dry kibble bag, so nothing gets in it. That has never happened to me, so I have no idea how the maggots got in there. I don't think it was larva from the meal moths, but I am not 100% sure. Anyway, this 28lb bag was 3/4 full when I noticed them. I scooped some food, and noticed these brown looking maggots ( the same color as the dog kibble ) crawling around. I returned the bag, the salesman alerted the company etc. I keep our dog food bags in our garage, that particular one is sealed, so I truly don't know how they got in there.

Yeah, I'd be freaked. Ick.

Sounds like some kind of moth larva, though.

Either way, puke-inducing.

domina, the pantry moth larvae I mentioned in your other thread are also known as meal moths or mealworm moths (because their larvae look so similar to real mealworms). I think RFR is right on target with that one as they are not uncommon in grain sources. I've heard stories of them riding inside oatmeal containers too which I guess is where they get their name. Mealworms are also not uncommon in grain sources so it could be either at this point but either way they're pretty gross.

OP- I would give that bin a good thorough washing before your dog goes anywhere near it if your mom sprayed copious amounts of pesticide in it. Poison is poison and it's just not a good idea to use that much of it where you know animals will be.

What about the poisoned maggots crawling out and about, prior to dying, though?

I'd keep pup on leash and away from the whole area, 'til you get the biohazard totally cleared

OK now because I'm a dork I had to go research the lifecycle of the meal moth larvae in comparison to the fly which we know is short.

The simplest way of determining this I would think is to think back to what was flying around the bin? Generally if there are fly larvae there are also copious amounts of flies as well.

The moth larvae have a much, much longer lifecycle so you may or may not have seen any moths yet as they may not have had the chance to hatch.

In any event (and RFR, thank you for that little foray into the lifecycle of the mealmoth ) please keep your little one clear of the insecticide. I might use a different bin altogether.

Good luck.

The bin had already been moved outside the fence not long after mum sprayed the repellent, so the puppy didnt really have a chance to go near the bin as i kept her mainly indoor until all is sorted out, and no more visible maggots around anymore(I've also place a cardboard on the floor where the bin had been to prevent the pup from contacting any repellent left over! So all is good now, thanks for the help everyone.

p.s Now I just flush her poop down the toilet, much safer this way!

I always use dog poo bags too, but if a fly lands on the poo and deposits eggs before you pick it up, then you will get maggots. I have the same problem here in the summer. I don't have an answer but I just wanted to let you know you are not the only one!
