I'm presuming they're the parisitic (sp?) things the hatch out of these horned worms?

What kind of seed pods are they? I imagine they'll still be good.

If they are Datura seed pods, I think the seeds should be OK.

Datura...thank you! I'm trying to wrap pods to save seeds. I double checked and didn't see any more larva.
