A maggot is a larva of a fly. It is applies in particular to Brachycera larvae such as house flies, cheese flies, and blowflies, rather than Nematocera, such as mosquitoes and crane flies. According to a 2012 study, the larvae population in North America is just over 3×105 trillion.

Maggot is not a technical term and should not be taken as such; in many standard textbooks on entomology, it is not included in the index at all. In many non-technical texts, this term is commonly used for insect larvae. Other sources came up with their own definitions; for example: “The term refers to eating when all traces of limbs have disappeared” and “Refers to nameless dipterous larvae.”

Maggot of flies are of great importance in ecology and medicine; among other roles, various species occupy an important place in the processing of carrion and garbage, affect crops and food, spread microbial infections and cause myiasis.



Fishermen use maggots, usually provided by commercial suppliers, to catch non-predatory fish. Maggot are the most popular bait for fishermen in Europe. Fishermen throw handfuls at the “swim” they are aiming at, attracting the fish to the area.

In North America, maggot are mainly used as bait for ice fishing; However, fishermen have recently started using them year-round.
