Black Mold, Beetles, and White ‘Ear Worms’ Plague This Woman and her Home

“We have black mold and have had beetles, but no bed bugs or anything”, writes this reader in her submission. “But I also found a white worm-like thing in my ear and now this is what my leg looks like. I will send both pictures. Also these little black dots in my wife’s hair.” Our reader sent in multiple photos, two of which we have included below. The first shows the black mold growing in her home, and the second shows her leg, which she reports is a consequence of finding a “white worm-like thing” in her ear. The photos we did not include showed another picture of the mold, and a picture of our reader’s wife’s hair, though the “little black dots” were not visible in the photo.
