Fruit fly problem

Hi, I brought a small flightless fruit fly culture to feed my ants protein but recently when clear my bookshelves I found a massive amount of pupae maggot things.It turns out the pot I was keeping them in wasn’t sealed properly. I’m really worried about an infestation. What can I use to kill them all/ or control the problem? I live in the UK. Are they going to survive or just die? Thanks for the help....

Just brush them out they can't really survive cold so you shouldn't have a long term problem but best tobact straight away put them in bag then freezer for ten mins that should kill them and you could try the dead large with the ants and they may take them
