Creatures in Bathroom and Pantry Could be Moth Larvae

A reader recently reached out to us from Milas, Spain. She wrote that she found some worm-like organisms in her bathroom. She recently discovered moths in her bathroom and pantry, so thinks the moths and the presence of these organisms could be related. After discovering these creatures she just wiped the surfaces and cleaned thoroughly.
She did send us a photo and short video, but they didn’t reveal much about the mysterious specimens. The photo was too small and the video was a little out of focus. Here is a snapshot we took from the video:

As you can see, it is difficult to know what we are looking at. We assume the creatures are the dark areas on the otherwise white background, but we can’t be certain. Since we aren’t able to determine much from the photo and video our reader sent, we will have to use the information she provided. She mentioned that she recently discovered moths in her bathroom and pantry. Based off that information, we believe she could be dealing with moth larvae.

We applaud our reader on wiping down the surfaces and cleaning thoroughly. Anyone who reads our articles frequently will know that the best way to get rid of unwanted organisms is often to clean to eliminate potential food sources! In the bathroom, she should make sure to scrub down and clean all of the drains to get rid of the build up of organic material that the larvae could be feeding on. She should also be sure to wipe down under all shampoo and soap bottles, since a lot of grime can build up in those areas as well.

To conclude, we believe our reader probably discovered moth larvae in her bathroom. She has already cleaned the area, and that is the best way to say goodbye to these creatures.
