Overcoming Clothes That Are Contaminated By Maggots?
Sorry, I wanted to ask, the wet clothes that I put in the bucket didn’t wash me immediately but were piled with old clothes and then I realized there were a lot of small maggots, the clothes that were affected by the maggots I threw away but there were other clothes already already in the laundry and there Also what I wash, is the maggot dead if only washed? How about maggots, can they also die immediately? I read if you kill maggots by soaking boiling water, but if so is that correct? Is it possible if the egg is still alive and can hatch into maggots in the future clothing? Sorry but I’m so worried because I’ve seen a video about maggots that can live in the human body, or are they like worms that are hard to kill? Hehe sorry if my question seems excessive, or maybe it can die maggot when I soak in hot water? Because I can’t throw away all my clothes hehe
Hello, thanks for your question.
First you have to make sure first, what you mean is true maggots or larvae of mosquitoes. If you soak your clothes in water without soap for a long period of time, of course it is very possible that mosquitoes lay eggs in the water. The eggs will hatch into larvae of small mosquitoes (several millimeters) and blackish in color. If you believe that what you find is a maggot, then you need to know that a maggot is a fly larva. That is, maggots can not lay eggs. Maggots must mature into adult flies before they can lay eggs. Fly eggs hatch and then become larvae (maggots).
Then it can be concluded that maggots are not the same as worms. As long as you have washed all your clothes and soaked them with hot water, maggots and fly eggs that might have been left behind are dead. You can wash it repeatedly with hot water or added to the clothes bleach. After you do that, your clothes should be clean. You don't need to worry too much, but to prevent something similar, don't delay washing your clothes for too long. If there really isn't time to wash, store clothes in dry conditions. That's all the answers from us, hopefully it's useful. Regards.
