How to Get Rid of Worms in the Home
- Make sure that all of your food stores are contained in air-tight jars or storage bins.
- Clean your house from top to bottom.
- Use a dehumidifier, change your HVAC settings and ventilate with open windows.
- Fill in any gaps or holes that might be allowing the worms to enter.
Secondly, what are the little brown worms in my carpet? The adult beetles are small and usually black to dark brown in color, but damage is actually caused during their larval stage. The larvae appear to be hairy little worms and can be found on or near carpets, clothing and, in some instances, dried food products.
Regarding this, where do small brown worms come from?
More than likely they are coming inside through cracks and gaps to either escape the hot weather or else to get out of the natural outdoor habitats that are too wet for them. They often come inside under door thresholds and around windows at ground level as they migrate in the fall.
Why am I seeing millipedes in my house?
Excess rain, drought, and cooler temperatures can make their outdoor habitats less favorable for them and you will often see millipedes in the house during these conditions. Excess rain will drive them indoors in search of shelter and drought will drive them indoors in search of water.
