Ok so I got my carved pumpkin down from the shelf, and lifted the lids and 3 flies flew out.

So I killed 2, ones still kicking about inside the pumpkin, I lit the candle and put the lid back on. Will this kill or drive any remaining flies or eggs, heaven forbid, out of it?

Also, its beginning to go rotten in small areas, Can I slow this down, by soaking it in water or something?

ewwwww @ flies.

Never had that problem!

They usually last about a week before they go all green and hairy inside.

The same happened to us the last 2 years. I tried moving it to a cooler place during the day (the heating didnt help matters) but it started caving in too so it got that I daren't even pick it up! lol

No idea what you could do tbh, its partly why I didnt want to do it this yr.. urgh :(

Stick it in the fridge when not on display. Rub Vaseline on the cuts to stop the edges drying out.
