I think or suggest we should add a Forum other than Miscellaneous/other and talk about Bugs, insects or health of trees in general because I don't know were to post this findings, for example the bugain that got caterpillars ( I have read that bugain were "bug free") but still I found mines with.

Another thing Disgusting I just found Tonight was Fly Larva! Take a look

After I saw them I gave all my bonsai a Malathion "bath".

How they appear well I simple put the plant in water for 1 day, that's it!
Isn't this WEIRD or what?
Btw they (larva) are all dead, they aren't good swimmers.

sorry for the delay.
The answer is no I put fresh water for 1 day only and at night I went to verify how the plant was handling the water and I saw dose dead maggots
I read from here http://www.worsleyschool.net/science/files/maggot/info.html that
When the maggots are full-grown, they crawl away to a dry, cool place near breeding material, and transform to the pupal stage.

So 2 things could happen probably there is a a rotting corp on my bonsai or... the maggots in time moved from a trash can near by to my bonsai if that the case I need to use malathion on all nearby pants.
