Found several of these bugs on the carpet in the bedroom on returning from a week or so away from the house.
What are they?
As you can not tell from the pictures, I should have said that it is soft and moves a bit like a caterpillar and that the dark portion is at the tail end not the head.
I had a video that showed the above but it was rather big so I did not send it.
I am attaching the photos again in case it is difficult to tie up the 2 emails.
We are unable to provide anything more than a very general identification at this time. This is an immature Dipteran, the insect order that includes Flies. They remind us of the larvae of a Bot Fly, but we cannot be certain. See this posting on BugGuide.
