Answer. If the “worms” are limited to your kitchen and are crawling up walls and along ceilings, its a good bet that they are Indianmeal moth larvae. The other white worms (in that size range) that can be found in kitchens are fly maggots, but those do not have legs. Maggots wiggle along; they cant crawl.
Similarly, what are white worms? Threadworms, also known as pinworms, are tiny parasitic worms that infect the large intestine of humans. The worms are white and look like small pieces of thread. You may notice them around your childs bottom or in their poo.
Also to know, how do you get rid of a maggot infestation?
Remove all food sources, and the flies will lay their eggs elsewhere. Pour boiling water over maggots to kill them instantly. If you want, you can add a cup of bleach and 1 1/2 cups of hydrogen peroxide to a gallon of boiling water. Dish soap works great as an insect repellant and/or insecticide.
What are small white worms?
Threadworms are tiny, very thin white worms up to 13 millimetres long that live in the intestine and around the anus (bottom). They are also called pinworms. They look like small threads of white cotton, hence their name. They are widespread in Australia.
