Maggots in our Broccoli

cabbage root maggots and fly

Our broccoli is under attack.  We found one plant lying on its side, root chewed through and two others starting to lean to one side.  Aidan thought it was the world's toughest cutworm, but upon closer inspection we found maggots crawling around the roots.  This is the first time we've experienced this particular pest officially known as cabbage root fly maggots.
We hate maggots, they're gross and disgusting, and to top it off, they're killing our broccoli.

What do we do?!
