a mystery bug I found
I’ve attached a photo of several egg "casings" I found in my bedroom. I placed these casings (each between 1/4 – 1/2") in a plastic bag, and you can see some wormy-looking things popping out of some. They eventually turn into a thin brown bug with wings. What are these things ? (I live in South Florida).

Hi Margie,
That is quite a Cache of Case-Bearers you have there. These are moth larvae that build a protective case and usually feed on pet hair. They are an annoyance but basically benign.
