Hi. So my mom and I recently discovered this insect in our house. He or She had the body of a centipede but only six legs. It seemed to be predominantly yellow with black bands of with red dots on them. We have never seen a bug like this and I’ve tried to find the name of it. When we found it, it was curling up so I didn’t get a high quality picture of it. It looks to me like a wireworm but none of the colors match up. Could you tell us what bug is this? Thank you
Signature: I’m not sure.

What a marvelous image of a Railroad Worm, an interesting common name for this Glowworm Larva.  Viewing the Railroad Worm in the dark will provide you with a wonderful light show.
