We recently heard from a reader in Istanbul. He explained that he has been finding some worm-like organisms around his home this summer. He finds them on his couch, on his bed, in the bathroom sink, and in the toilet bowl. He wrote, “I researched your website and found that they look like drain fly larvae and also flea larvae. I would like to know which they are.” He also let us know that he has a cat and that his apartment is quite humid. The photo he sent us shows a tiny worm-like organism next to a lighter.
