    Default Small black worms?

    Ive never seen this before in my house until I started feeding raw, so I'm hoping to find more information about it here.

    There are tiny black worm-looking things in my house.
    The only places I've found them are in the kitchen where raw meat is handled/prepared and right by Eevee's crate where she eats.
    They dont move when I see them, and they're normally curled into a 'C' shape.
    I'm not too worried about them, I'm just confused for the most part.

    Are they hard shell? They look like those little things that are notorious here in the south. We don't have a problem with them but know people that have in their sheds and garages. Can't remember if I heard they are a probelm if you live in a moist area or wooded....ummm.

    It looks like a little millipede. That wouldn't have anything to do with raw feeding, though. They seem to prefer cooler, humid conditions, like basements.
    RAW FED SINCE AUGUST 2010

    Yup, hard shell.
    Ive only been living in NC for 6 months now, maybe thats why Ive never seen 'em before, lol!

    Yelp, sounds like them...def look like millipedes never thought about it...you do see them in basements and such. It's just rare for people to have basements in the south.
