These pests thrive in cool, moist, highly organic soils. The several species include cabbage and onion maggots, found primarily in the northern United States, and the seed-corn maggot, a widespread pest which destroys germinating seeds. The adults of most species look like gray houseflies. The white, legless, burrowing maggots have a pointy head and a blunt rear.
