Tiny dead worms....


A few days ago, I was replacing some grout in the tile in my living room floor. I cleaned out the crumbled grout and in the space, I found 4 or 5 little dead worms. They looked about the size of maggots, only a cream to golden color, with a brown head, and curled up. Today I found one (dead also) in the corner of the bathroom, under the baseboard. They all look like they have been there a while. Any idea what these things may be? We don't have a moisture problem.

Have you ever had a pantry pest problem? Could be yellow meal worm larvae? It could be the dead larvae of numerous moths or beetles. Take one to an exterminator or the Dept. of Agriculture Extension Agent for identification.
