Post subject:  Green Bottle Fly larvae and others in my BSFL bin

I'd like to ask if there's anything I should or even can do about controlling the green bottle flies. I've learned to distinguish between their eggs and BSFL eggs, so I get rid of their eggs. I still have lots of larvae that aren't BSFL in my bin. One in particular doesn't look like the pictures of the bottle flies that I find on the internet. When mature, it's white and very soft bodied and has 3 or 4 small soft 'prongs' sticking out of it's rear (at least I think it's the rear). It kind of looks like the nose on a star-nosed mole, but fewer projections. My chicken's get them, but I'd rather focus on the BSFL!! It may be that I just have to put up with them, but if there's any ideas what to do, I'd appreciate it. I'm in a tropical setting where nothing dies in the 'winter', so I can't count on that! (Hawaii - Big Island) Thanks. Susan.
