At the end of November I was putting up the plastic containers that house our Christmas decor and under one of them, by the sliding glass door in our carpet I found a somewhat hard, brown, squirming thing. I really had no idea what it was. Well, I had some ideas, but I didn't know. It could have been some kind of larve or worm, but I was hoping it was a moth cocoon. We put it in a mason jar (with some foil that I poked holes in with a fork on top) in the kitchen. Over a month went by with my checking it out every day, no progress. Finally, one morning I noticed a brownish liquid on the paper towel in the bottom of the jar. My first thought was, "Oh great, someone smashed our whatever it is." I looked more closely at it and it was not smashed but it looked empty and there was nothing else in the jar, then I looked on the foil and hanging there was a MOTH!
I know you can't really see it here, but it's there.
