I have never fed them but I do think they are Black solider fly larvae if I remember what I have read.....So it is most likely those that have morphed from the larvae.....Much like what was being discussed in that thread Jim posted......

They are soldier flies.. which can't bite (they don't feed as adults) or sting.
