Well, under the circumstances, I guess you did the best thing you could do. You froze the maggots (fly larvae).
The best thing to do at this point is to unfreeze the freezer, and wash the entire freezer out. Use bleach and lots of it to disinfect and try to deodorize the freezer. Use a water hose, turn the freezer sideways, and start spraying it out. Use bleach, or soap and get a rag and start spraying and wiping. Spray it out into the yard or if you have to, down your alley. Your neighbors will hate you for this...... lol
You will have to leave it open for several days or more and let it air out to try and get the smell out of it. This will take some time, but it can be done.
As far as the fly problem? You could spray the flies with the Bifen I/T before you clean it to kill the maggots and adult flies. Just be sure to completely clean and sanitize it before using it.
Wandering flies can be controlled with CB 80, it's an aerosol pyrethrum spray that kills flies in seconds. Just spray it into the air or directly on the flies. Works great.
Hope this helps. This happened to me one time too. We had fish in our freezer from a deep sea fishing trip. The freezer somehow blew the breaker, and we didn't know it until it started to smell. It was horrible. Good luck.
