Although this creature has an odd way of moving, it is still hard to place. Without a more detailed picture, we aren’t able to determine for sure what she is dealing with. Based on what we know, we guess that she is probably dealing with moth fly larvae. These are found so often in bathrooms, in sinks, and in showers that these moth flies are nicknamed “drain flies”. The larvae are likely feeding on organic matter trapped in the drain or pipes. Our reader should use a drain cleaner that is known to specifically kill organic matter. This should eliminate the food source of the moth fly larvae, and therefore eliminate the pests. She should also deep clean her bathroom to avoid future bug infestations!
To sum up, our reader sent in a video of a larva she found in her bathroom sink. We believe this is moth fly larva, which is often found in bathrooms!
