I need help in identifying some caterpillars I have found between the carpet
and the floorboards down stairs.
I lifted the carpet in this corner to lay some new cabling for sockets and
found a fair amount of silky material between floorboards and carpet. Within
this silky material were about 2 dozen casts and about 10 bright yellow
caterpillars with a dark brown bit at the rear. they are about 15mm long or
5/8 in old tongue.
Can anyone out there help in identifying them. If they are harmless then
I'll leave them but I don't want them spreading to other areas of the room
or other rooms of the house.
The area of the room concerned escapes a thorough hoovering due to it being
the position of the computer and only gets a quick going over which made me
think of carpet beetles but that's a negative.
