Found out where they were coming from..... the potato drawer.... which hasn't been opened since February..... when i bought 50 lbs. of potatoes.So guess what was in there..... about 30 lbs of liquified potatoes... and maggots. Apparently iwas running a fly nursery in there and didn't know it. Sooooooo gross. I covered my hand in a plastic grocery bag and emptied the drawer.... well, it took several grocery bags. and I emptied everything into a kitchen trash bag, tied it up and put it out in the can.i pulled the drawer out and wiped the floor underneath (liquid potatoes underneath....eww) and sprayed out the inside of the drawer with a bleach spray. Still need to clean out the maggot carcases from the drawer.... big ewwww.Sorry about the gross level here. I just had to share. I hated doing it...i put off opening the drawer for two days.... I knew you all would be able to understand.
