These look like caterpillars.  Could be a tineid moth species. You'll have to 
do some sleuthing to find out what could be infested.

Subject: [pestlist] Help identifying larvae


I would really appreciate some help identifying the larvae in the attached 
photo, they are about 5mm long and were found on a pest trap next to a coat 
stand so it is possible they have been brought in on a coat. Could they be 
clothes moth larvae or are they too small?


Many thanks,

Frances Cooper
