My daughter found this on her pillow. Can you please identify and let us know if we should be worried about infestation or hazards.

This is a Case Bearing Moth Larva, and they are frequently found in homes where they feed on pet hair and other organic materials. They can be a nuisance if they are plentiful. We have a funny image in our archives of a large group of Case Bearing Moth Larvae feeding on pet food.
