Looks like a type of caterpillar to me?

BankWadger Fri 14-Apr-17 22:44:43

It's a caterpillar.

Applebite Fri 14-Apr-17 22:45:38

It's a baby butterfly. Does that make it more appealing? smile

M2R2 Fri 14-Apr-17 22:45:56

Its so tiny. I though its a thread from a wool hat till dd point out that its moving.
I could only see it like that by zooming

Carpet beetle larvae (Google image search)

M2R2 Fri 14-Apr-17 22:48:28

No please no. Does that mean there is more in my carpet???

How long is it? It looks like a moth caterpillar to me.

It's missing bits for a woodlouse. Baby caterpillar?

About 5mm long and so hairy. Exactly like a wool thread 😒

M2R2 Fri 14-Apr-17 23:08:14

Elodie it does look a bit like that.
Am freaking out now. What shall i do

IloveBanff Fri 14-Apr-17 23:13:11

What should you do? confused How about evicting it?

It looks like a first instar Vapourer Moth larva to me, where was it?

M2R2 Fri 14-Apr-17 23:21:31

Hawkmoth it's definitely all black.
I was folding the laundry and dd noticed it on her hand. So to be honest not sure if it was on the laundry or somewhere else.
I had the laundry by the window and was open all day. As a first reaction i though it came from outside as i have grass straight outside my window.
My skin feels itchy now.

Are you for real?

M2R2 Fri 14-Apr-17 23:25:36

Picktish is it the first time you see someone freaking out? I can't stand things that crawl its not something i can control

Hawkmoth Fri 14-Apr-17 23:26:35

Vapourers lay eggs on walls so it could have just crawled in. Pop it outside. It's fine.

Looks like a baby hairy granny caterpillar to me.

IloveBanff Fri 14-Apr-17 23:32:11

I just can't understand why you're taking photos and asking what to do instead of just chucking it outside.

pictish Fri 14-Apr-17 23:32:14

It's minuscule and completely harmless.

Scottishchick39 Fri 14-Apr-17 23:32:23

Oof! Just googled hairy granny to see what the official name for that caterpillar was, I didn't expect the results I got πŸ˜³πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

pictish Fri 14-Apr-17 23:33:57

It's a wee caterpillar btw. Just shake the hat outside.

M2R2 Fri 14-Apr-17 23:44:50

Ilovebanff i sure did chuck it outside.
I took pictures to check what it is as i am scared that i may have more or something.
Asking what to do doesn't relate to this single one. Am thinking if it is a carpet beetle larvae or something there might be more. Thats why am freaking out

pictish Fri 14-Apr-17 23:47:51

Or maybe a beetle larvae as suggested earlier.
Nothing to worry about.
