Hello, I need help in trying to identifying these dead, small, dark, semi-circular "baby-worm-like" things that are found on the outside of my house and in my basement. This is the first year I noticed my new, little, guests...I really don't want them here. I can send some pics if you'd like. Thank you for your help. Bonnie

From your description of the insects it sounds like you may be referring to millipedes.
They occasionally enter homes but do not cause damage. Look at photos on our website to see if this is what you are referring to. If not, send us digital photos via this site.
