Little red worm in my bed

Asked July 20, 2020, 6:57 AM EDT

I found a red worm underneath my sheets but I have no carpet in my basement suite. It was about a half inch long and a little thinner than a pencil lead, what is it? It didn't appear to have any hair or any distinguishing features just a very smooth body and it moved fairly quickly. I live in western Canada (Alberta) and have never seen anything like this before.

I cannot tell what this is. Humans can have internal parasites that may look like what you describe, but it is very possible that this is just some worn that got into your basement suite. if you see others, collect into a flask with rubbing alcohol and take to your medical doctor to make sure it is nothing you should worry about.
