Tiny white bugs destroying bulb. Not maggots...A week ago I noticed my onions weren't doing so great.. My mother suggested digging one out to see what was going on. I did. They were loaded with reddish brown ants carrying around these tiny white things on their heads! I assumed they were ant larvae or something. So, I put some organic ant killer down and waited a week. I dug up another one and they are still looking sickly as ever, but now, if you peel back the first layer there is a multitude of these teeny tiny crawling white bugs! I also spotted one crystal clear super thin, like 1/2 the size of a sewing needle, worm?? Help!!! I'm pretty sure they aren't maggots. They have legs.
