Maggot type worm in my onions

Zone Twisp, Wa. 98856 | suzy.patrick1 added on June 20, 2015 | Answered

I have little maggot type worms that are killing my onions. How can I get rid of them before they kill more than the onions? Will watering the soil surrounding the unaffected onions kill these horrible little pests? Should I pull the remaining onions, replace the soil and start from scratch?
