We have observed the following (may be related??).
1. shriveled black larvae on side of vial and in cotton plug
2. some first to early second instar larvae have what look like raised 
circular lumps under the surface of the animal (range of "lumps" is the 
whole length of animal -- except for the head).
3. observed adults an found no signs of external mites.

Any suggestions as to what the problem is and how to deal with it.
Thanks
