Where are your maggots? Are they in the feeder or the cage or on the floor? If in the feeder, empty it and wash it out with a good bleach/water solution, rinse it out with clear water and then set in the full sun for a day. If they are on the floor, you can again, wash it with bleach water and rinse it, with clear water, or if you can shovel them up, and if you have any birdy type critters,they would appreciate the free meal!
I have found them in a couple of my feeders about every other day IF I don't wash those 2 feeders out particularly well. I'm not exactly sure why those 2 are the ones picked on, but I'm glad its ONLY those 2 and not my whole herd of them.
Someone else may come along with better information, but I hope this helps until they do.
Patty, wondering how your bunny is doing. I ended up putting mine to sleep a couple of days ago because of this. She was not a meat rabbit, but a pet and old. It was not something I could take care of, they must have been there a couple of days only, but I couldn't believe the harm they caused her. I'm just heartbroken and didn't want her to suffer.
