I collected a box of acorns for some squirrels that are being rehabbed to have in winter. They were collected about 1.5 to 2 wks ago. I read recently that they should be cold stored or frozen. Forgot to and went away for the weekend. Box was near the radiator. I came home to many fat meal worm things on the carpet. They are off white with reddish brown heads. Some were dead others very much alive. I vucumed them up and threw out the bag. What are they? Was vacuming enough? Will they die or reproduce if I didn't get all? Did they come from inside the acorns? Are the acorns still good? Alot have little born holes in them.
