Maggots on my ceiling?

What are these little worm-like things? They're crawling all over my kitchen ceiling (I keep my kitchen clean) and it's grossing me out.

. About a week ago, I started noticing a few moths flying around my kitchen, but thought maybe it was because I'd left the windows open (I have screens, but it was all I could think of). Then I noticed these guys crawling all over the ceiling. I've seen up to 20 a day, though only 4 today. I'm sure they're common, but I don't even know where to begin. I'd guess maggots of some sort, but where are they coming from? It's baffling, because I keep the kitchen clean (and it's especially spotless now -- I've even been checking all the food, and have tossed stuff I would normally keep), and I thought maggots usually lived in rotting meat. How do I get rid of them?
Btw, I've called and emailed the landlord, but no response. I know she'll get back to me eventually, but I'd like to know what they are and get rid of them now, if possible.
