We recently found a number of pupae in an upstairs room near and on some stuffed animals. We have had a squirrel problem in the attic and we feel like the squirrels may have died in the attic attracting these flies.Do you think it's feasible that the squirrel died, causing a flesh fly infestation in our attic which caused pupae to fall from the attic into the room below it?The pupae we found were identical to these pictures and we found two dozen or so scattered around my daughter's stufed animals. Some were buried into the fur of the stuffed animals pretty deep.
