Looks like a small maggot to me
Keep an eye out for more these little bastards can get anywhere.

Do you have any rotting food you don't know about?

Sometimes I find maggots like that coming from my tub and bathroom sink drain.
>>
drain fly?
>>
>>2596490
possibly a caterpillar
>>
diptera (fly) maggots don't usually have a distinct and blunt head like that

I'm guessing more of a beetle or moth larva, which would have little legs underneath

Check your food stores. It came from there or unless you are a fucking slob clean your room. It will eat grain products.
>>
>>2596490

OP here

I have thousands of these in between my mattress where I store bedtime snacks. I sprayed it with Lysol and got a motel room.

I hate you

why do you have rotting food in your tub and bathroom sink?
>>
>>2599006
oh my fucking god

Its a caterpilla, most likely a moth species. Being as pale as it is I would imagine it would usually have a cacoon weaved in which it would reside in even before metamorphesis.

Where did you find it?
>>
>>2596490

It's holometabolous, and it looks eucephalic. Maybe Coleoptera, Lepidoptera or Symphyta.

OP, to identify hexapoda larvae we need to see wings, head and legs
>>
>>2596490
it's a maggot you faggot.


:D

>between my mattress where I store bedtime snacks
The autism is real.

Reminds me of my stupid girlfriend who left food or something open in her dorm for a week while she went back home, and when she came back, the whole place was filled with fruit flies. Those fuckers are impossible to kill unless you make vinegar traps, or hunt down every single one when they land on the wall.

>>2596490
Moth larvae, they'll infest you pantry and can climb walls and CIELINGS kill them all with extreme prejudice
>>
Baby snake ?

If it's being found near food like you say it is, it's definitely an Indian Meal Moth. Here's a size comparison of their larvae and pupae to a penny.

The best thing you can do is get rid of the food, seeing as that's where they are. Make sure you clear your bed, carpet, and areas around the frame to ensure you get any leftover pupae/larvae.

After that, stop storing food in your fucking mattress for fucks sake.
