Power washing might blow some of them away, but also may encourage growth of other organisms...cause it ain't gonna dry out fast and moisture is a worse threat than a few beetles.

Where are the maggots?
.....and the beetles?
They may all be going for spilled feed, even more so if the feed got wet.
Some pics of the bugs and your coop would help here.
