We’ve started seeing a number of these critters in our bathtub. They are 3-5 mm in length and are extremely fragile. I did this guy in trying to get him under the scope, so I don’t have a better pic. It has been a very wet fall here in northeast GA and I suspect the water is driving them to higher ground. They are driving the wife nuts and need to find out what they are and how to get rid of them.

Bathroom Fly Larva

Bathroom Fly Larva

Dear Jim,
We believe this is the larva of a Bathroom Fly or Drain Fly which is pictured on BugGuide.  They are also called Moth Flies and are in the subfamily Psychodinae.  The tiny mothlike adults are frequently found in bathrooms, and the larvae live in the drains.
