please can someone help identify these bugs in my kitchen

Hi,

 

Last night I found the following bugs on the wall in my kitchen:

 

Small dark brown/black worm/larvae like bugs, about 0.5mm wide, about 5mm long.

 

Some were crawling along the walls (like a caterpillar i.e. arching back and sliding along, rather than with legs) and some were hanging from the celing on threads.

 

Please see video (sorry it's out of focus):

 

 

 

Please can anyone help to identify these and how to get rid of them?  Are the dangerous i.e. o they bite/burrow in skin or can they infest my pets etc?

 

Thanks,

 

S Bailey

  • Looks like some kind of moth caterpillar, difficult to tell exactly what from video footage. Can you get a close up photo of one? Wont be harmful to humans or pets Do you know what they were feeding on?

  • It moves like a looper caterpillar (Geometridae).
