Maggot

Maggot, common name for any wormlike larva of a fly, especially the larvae of those flies that lay their eggs in decaying materials, such as carrion, or in living tissues. The living or rotting material furnishes heat for the hatching of the eggs and food for the newly hatched maggots. Certain blowfly maggots were once used in surgery to remove, by ingestion, both bacteria and the injured tissue in deep wounds.
