Hi Nate,
Your request did not indicate if these Maggots were found inside a pumpkin that was cut into, or if they were found in an already carved Jack-O-Lantern that was beginning to rot, which is our suspicion.  Flies are attracted to organic matter that is rotting and if conditions are right, the Maggots that hatch from the fly eggs will develop quickly.
