“I found this on our water while I was filling the tub”, states this reader in her query concerning the black worm pictured below. She is not sure if they are leeches or something else, and wants to know if it is harmful.
“EWWW!!!” says this reader upon finding larvae crawling up from the baking soda she put on a bathroom carpet in an attempt to clean it. The larvae in question are a gradient of colors, their bodies moving from white to dark gray, with a black tip on the lighter end. They also appear to be bristled, and from the video our reader sent it is clear that the larvae have no legs.
“We found these little tiny black worms in our bathtub and was wondering what they are,” states this reader in his submission. From the pictures he sent us, we can see that the worms look more brown than they do black, with horizontal stripes running along their bodies and dark tips at either end.
