: No idea if anyone can help me, but it's worth a shot I suppose.

: One day I noticed what looked like a little clump of dust...which was climbing up the wall.

: Upon closer inspection, there seemed to be a tiny little worm inside the clump of dust. The head (I assume) end of the worm would stick itself out, then latch onto the wall, and it'd then pull the clump of dust along behind it, and so on and so forth.

: They're kinda cream/tan in colour, with a dark brown/black head. Can't get a look at the rest of the body because it's always hidden in that clump of dust. They'd only be about 1cm (less than half an inch) long.

: It's at the point where I'm coming across at least one per day. I'm watching one climb the wall in here right now, (it'll soon be flushed just like the rest of 'em).

: If anyone has any idea what these things could be, I'd love to know!


Based on your description it sounds like Plaster Bagworms. You can go to this link for more information: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/IG090

Some of the control products are available at the e-bug store on this site or you can contact a professional to take care of it for you.

Good luck!
