GROSS! Bugs in my dish cupboard!! What are they?

The other day I went to grab a plate from my cupboard and notice it was dirty... looked like black crumbs. but at a closer look they were MOVING!! I was so disgusted! I tore apart my entire cupboard and found more on other random dishes, I have never seen them before. I removed all my dishes, sprayed the cupboard with bugspray, let it be for awhile, came back scrubed it down with hot water and lysol inside and out and everywhere near!! I washed all my dishes in the dishwasher, dried them and put them back in the cupboard... this was just yesterday I finished dryin and puttin away the last of it about 5 hours ago, I went to get a plastic bowl for my daughter and there they were again...
they are teeny tiny little blackish looking caterpiller things, so DISGUSTING. I don't understand where they came from when everything is clean and they can't crawl out of the bowl so how did they get in there, WHAT ARE THEY???
anyone else?

  • nope not maggots... so far its a mystery, I'm still trying to figure this out. cus I re-washed all my dishes in the dishwasher, dried them and put them all away in my freshly cleaned and disinfected cupboard.
    i know what maggots look like and other sorts of liittle creepy crawlies but not these...

  • Well my best advice is too call pest controll just because we had ants and tried to take care of it ourself and they kept coming back and I am a clean freak when it comes to this we called pest ppl and they were gone in 2 weeks....Sugar Ants???
