Maggot is a general term for the larval form of an insect. They appear 2-5 days after an adult insect lays its eggs. In the case of a deceased animal, flies are usually the source of maggots. The flies lay their eggs after being drawn to the smell of rotting flesh. The eggs hatch into maggots and they get their nutrients from eating the body. This also aids in decomposition. Actually there is a field of forensics called forensic entymology or solving crimes by observing the insects/larva on a body. Each insect has a specific life cycle and the time it takes for the larva to hatch can be diagnostic.
If there are no flies then there will be no maggots. No flies, no eggs, no maggots.
Maggots are the larvae that hatch from eggs laid by flies. No flies means no maggots. If there are maggots, a fly laid eggs that hatch.
The first bugs on a dead body are flies and beetles. Maggots and beetle larvae are also found on a dead body.
Yes, if flies can reach the body, they lay eggs on it and the maggots hatch and eat.
it looks rotted and it has maggots crawling in and out of the body.
Lots of different little bugs like maggots
No, maggots are young flies. Flies lay eggs in the body that hatch into maggots and the maggots eat the body as they grow.
Their mouth because of suliva left in it.
Yes, there are maggots in the desert. They are common in and on the bodies of dead animals there.
Maggots are produced by flies, not by dead bodies. Whether maggots would appear will depend on whether flies land on the body. If the room is merely concealed (i.e. hidden) there's nothing to stop flies getting in. If you mean a sealed, airtight room then maggots would not appear.
no maggots will only eat dead tissue.
No, maggots hatch out of fly eggs.
Only if it is dead flesh. Maggots only eat dead flesh.
If the bird is dead, leave them be. If the bird is alive, well, leave them be. Maggots will only eat dead flesh and can only clean the wound of a live animal. The use of maggots for medicinal purposes have been becoming more common in hospitals around the world. That's right. They're used on humans.If the bird is dead, and the maggots are unpleasing to look at, just move the dead body somewhere else, or bury it.
We are born with parasites, not maggots.
Maggots are decomposers because they absorb nutrients from dead bodies.
Maggots will eat the flesh of any dead animal.
yes, they eat anything that's dead or rotton, i have a project on them. =)
Leeches are blood sucking parasites, they are normally found in body's of fresh water. Maggots are fly larvae they can be found in rotting food or carcases ( like a dead body, maggots can be found where flys have laid eggs), an example is maggots can found in cans of raw mushrooms.
because maggots live in dead bodies or any where disgusting
A vulture. Maggots.
Maggots are found on any decomposing body. They are found about everywhere.
Maggots do eat sugary products, especially candy. Maggots are the larvae of flies and they also eat decomposing flesh of dead bodies.
Maggots are fly larvae, and they subsist on primarily dead meat and waste. Unless maggots were introduced in the production process accidentally, there's no reason to find maggots in chocolate - they can't survive in it.
Unless you ate one (in which case it would be dead) there isn't a maggot in you body. Maggots only eat dead tissue and this is why they can be soo usefull for thinks like gangreen where the eat the dead, rotten tissue but are not interested in the healthy stuff.
