Gray worm-like creatures infestation?
My husband and I moved into our house in July. In the last few months we have noticed these gray worm-like creatures in our basement (found two upstairs). They are about an inch and a half long and when you touch them they stop moving and curl up.
At first I thought they were centipedes but they don't really look like the centipedes in photos I've found in google searces. We are finding 3 or more a day and we can't figure out where they are comming from...they just seem to appear in the middle of the floor. Not there one second, and ::poof:: there the next. Always out in the middle of the floor, never by a door or window (so far). We've had the house sprayed professionally twice, before we noticed these critters, and we have sprayed twice with store bought bug spray since we noticed them but, we don't know if we are spraying for the right things.
I saved one of the little worms in a baggie and I'm going to call the bug guy today but I was just curious if anyone may have an idea as to what they may be. We live in the St. Louis MO area.
I've never seen so many little gray worms. Come to think of it, we didn't start seeing them until after we finished part of our basement. Do you think that maybe they could have come in the boxes of carpet tiles we used or somehow in the drywall?
