swimming pool water is the attraction. the maggots come from dead anmial matter. they are comming from the trash can or maybe someplace else look on the deck for maggots they go toward the water for the moisture. bag your trash in bags and seal it. wash your trash cans with detergant once a month. the little buggers can crawl quite a distance. they dont come from the water, they come to it.check the deck.

what size were they because i found a lot of them in a bucket of water and i think that they are maggots they are so tiny and i don't know what to do with them because they have a black head and a long but tiny body and < that was like the end of the body it looks so weird i don't know where they came from they are starting to creep me out i have no idea what to do with them.

I thought maggots can only exist on food But I am wrong. Really?

It's blue bottle larvae they lay their eggs they hatch in 1 day into these vile maggot things which if left they have a cocoon around them like a butterfly chrysalis then grow wings and fly away, I have them every day I open the lid of my hottub now the weather is getting colder.. Horrible when you find them floating in the water

A pool cover will help you to keep the maggots away.
