Nothing killed these things. They came inside in fall and I lost the fern. Never had ANY problems with ferns before.

The larva could have been from a moth or bug. The next time you bring in plants to winter over, try
treating them with Neem Oil, which is organic and safe for people and pets.
You can treat any plant to make sure you don't bring in unwanted pests into your home.
