Dried-up, Dead, Brown Worms Found on Bedroom Floor are Earthworms

“I’ve been noticing these dried worm-like creatures around my wooden floor in my bedroom”, states this reader about the small, brown organism pictured below. “I find them every morning. They are always curled, dried, brownish-looking, and around 1 cm (0.4-inches). Can you please help me identify? Thank you.” From the pictures our reader included, we think she is finding dead earthworms around her bed. It is curious that she is finding these worms here. When earthworms come into people’s homes, they tend to come up through people’s drains, usually as a result of a leak in the drain pipes underground. However, how so many earthworms ended up in our reader’s bedroom is a bit of a mystery. All we can do in this case is guess.
