Reader Finds Lots of Different Worms in New House

We recently heard from a reader who just moved into his new house and is being welcomed by worms. He said there are about ten different types, and about 50-100 dead ones on the sliding glass door in the front. He doesn’t know what to do and needs help getting rid of these creatures.

We would love to be of assistance to this reader, but it is impossible to help without additional information. We don’t know anything about the worms’ appearances, such as size, shape, or color. We also don’t know anything about where our reader is writing from, and sometimes climate can be a big clue in determining species. Finally, he didn’t send in any photos, which leaves us relying heavily on our imaginations.

UPDATE! All About Worms has partnered with HealthLabs so that
you can get tested for parasites at a fully-qualified lab near you,
no doctor's visit required

What we can do is offer general information on dealing with such household pests.  Our reader should clean every room thoroughly, removing all of the worms he can find.  If they keep coming, he should look for any openings from the outside into his house, and seal them up.  He should also look to be sure there isn’t some organic matter stashed somewhere in a corner of his house.

If our reader writes in again with a picture or any more details about this worm we would be delighted to help him solve this problem!

To conclude, we heard from a reader who has found tons of worms in his new house. Without crucial details we cannot say what type of worms these might be or how he can go about getting rid of them.
