Have there been a lot of tiny flies around it? Sounds like maggots to me.

Sounds like maybe moth larva. I had an outbreak over the winter of them laying eggs somewhere in the closet and then the larva would climb to the top of the room and spin a cocoon. It took months to get rid of them.
Have you noticed any tiny 1/4-1/2 inch moths flying around?
