It sounds to me like you have Black Soldier Fly Larvae. They are great little composters and have no vectors for human disease. I get them in my compost and worm compost bins, the worms just better compost what the BSFLs have processed. Look into Biopod Plus, and you will find good info.
I have recently discovered the Black Soldier Fly Larvae in my worm composting bin which is in the house. Now that I know that the BSFs are good composters and benign otherwise, I want to know what is the best thing to do with the ones that exit the bin. I think they are ready to pupate and that is why they exit. I find them on the tile floor or under throw rugs. It amazes me that the BSFs can move so far so quickly on my slick tile floor since they have no legs! I have been setting them outside the front door.
I would put them on top of your outdoor compost pile. Or, you can put them on a flat surface bird feeder for wild birds or feed them to fish or chickens if you have them. Many chicken and fish owners grow them for a great protein source. Interesting that they got into the indoor bin and are escaping as larvae!
