Maggot looking worms in my mealworm tub


I ordered some mealworms for My bearded dragon and when they came the package was crushed and had small maggot looking worms in the box but only a few that I could see . I put them in a new box with another underneath just in case anything got out and I was correct in thinking that.
Fast forward a few days there everywhere in the outer box and over half the box is dead the supplier has had similar complaints about the same issue already.
Don't really want to give them to my beardie anymore just want to know what they are and are they harmful?

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
