Worms in feeding bin

Does anyone know what these worms are? It's really difficult to get a good picture if you don't see them moving but it's those hairy ones that almost look like centipedes. My feeding bin is crawling with them after I fed off the crickets and there are only isopods left in there. Or should....
In the summer the bin was outside for some days because it was warmer than inside, so maybe some wild bugs came in during that time.
Do you think I should trash ist?

I have no idea- personally, I’d trash it rather than take the risk

Those are dermestid beetle larva, clean up crew that they put in when they ship feeder insects so they are fine.
You are right, that's what they look like. Strange I didn't notice them when I put everything in, though.
Thank you a lot! :)

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?
