At least 24″ long Horsehair Worm???
Hi,
Found this worm in the driveway. Looking at your site, we thought maybe this is a horsehair worm but didn’t see any nearly this long. In the photo, the ruler is 12″ and the worm is more than twice that length. Otherwise, matches descriptions from others: smooth, no sections, very thin, slightly stiff – not floppy like an earthworm.

Hi Michelle and Pete,
Thanks for sending us your amazing photo of an enormous Horsehair Worm, an internal parasite of the Potato Bug.
