Hi guys I need some help! I found these wriggly things on my carpet and I have no idea what they are! I have searched and searched online but came up with nothing! Does anyone know what they are?

Clothes moths?

Are they silverfish?

Silver fish

Silver fish move fast!
Carpet moth larvae usually have a papery case around them, though I've seen them without. And they are very very very slow!

Poke it and see if it moves grin

Man those things eat everything. It's the only time I'm grateful for having ants.

Have you got a dog or cat?

I have 2 cats! If you poke them they curl up! They are so small and thin I've never seen them before and I always keep my carpet clean sad

Here's a picture to show how small they are. It's really driving me insane!

i think your cats need worming.😷

I've just seen your last pic, looks like flea larvae.

I'd say flea larvae too. You will need to treat the whole house and especially anywhere the cats sleep.

The cats get wormed and de flead every 4 weeks plus they are indoors too. How do you get rid of them?

Carpet beetle larvae I would think. They grown into things called hairy bears if they are!

Larvae from carpet moths before they cover themselves with threads of wool from the carpet. They eat the carpet, especially round the edges of in dark areas behind doors or under furniture.
