Mysterious Worms on Bathroom Floor

One of our readers recently submitted the question: “Could this be a worm too?” The submitter explained that she found some type of worm on her bathroom floor and attempted to kill it using insecticide. However, the worms survived through the insecticide treatment. When the reader used hot water on these worms they died. Two days after this event the reader found two more worms. She requests any advice we can give about this situation.

Unfortunately, we do not have enough information to help our reader out very much. The way in which the question was written suggests that the reader might have typed it all in a different language and then translated it to English. If this is the case, we do not know where the reader is from or what language is her native tongue.

She didn’t send us a photo, and that is often the easiest way to identify worms that our readers discover. Without a photo we usually rely on a detailed description of what the worms look like and move like. It is difficult to help our reader get rid of worms that we do not have any detailed information on. She did tell us that she found the worms in the bathroom, but there are any number of worms that someone might find in the bathroom.

To conclude, a reader asked us to advise her on how to get rid of some worms she discovered in her bathroom. She didn’t send us a photo, or include any details about the situation besides where she discovered the specimens. This is unfortunate because we have no way of knowing what type of worm our reader discovered and therefore cannot help her to get rid of them. If she continues to find these worms we encourage her to take a photo and send it in to our site! With a picture we will have a much easier time figuring out what species of worm is hanging out in her bathroom.
