Wax Moths?

Asked July 3, 2020, 8:42 AM EDT

We get these Larvae every year. Someone suggested they are Wax Moths but we haven't any honey comes. We do have bees that like the Rose of Sharon right outside our slider door. Could they be coming from the bush?

That is not a caterpillar; it is a fly larva (commonly known as a maggot). Since you mentioned a slider door, I'm assuming that this is possibly on a porch? I would consider the possibility of something like house flies, Musca domestica, to be the species.
