Hi Dennis,
Possibly this critter is the culprit, link right from our own PBS site.  

Ernie DeMarie in NY where the bulbs that are blooming are inside, namely a spiloxene, several oxalis spp, lachenalia viridiflora, Hesperantha hantamensis, a couple of Massonias,  Lapeirousia plicata, and Walleria gracilis.  


HOLY CRAP!!!  I cut into my bulb and found live caterpillars inside.  
GROSS!  What are they??  I never heard of anything in Ohio that would 
eat a Hippeastrum bulb from the inside out.  YUCK.
