An Australian mother is horrified after spotting small black worms swimming in her toilet shortly after whitening the bowl.

The woman, from the Hunter region of New South Wales, said that every time she cleans scrubs and cleans her toilet, she sees the worms appear – but they disappear completely as soon as they appear.

After they went to a Facebook group to ask for help in identifying the bizarre vermin, it was quickly brought to her attention as drain fly larvae – a warning that there is a lot of accumulation in the drain of the toilet or the damaged pipes.

Many homeowners suggested that there was a plague somewhere in her pipes, so she had to find a plumber or have them cleaned up thoroughly.

What are drain-fly larvae?

If small worms swim around in your toilet, then drain larvae is probably brooding somewhere in your pipes.

Waste flies search for decomposing organic material to deposit their eggs in the pipes.

As soon as their eggs hatch, the larvae feed on microbiological organisms in dirty sewers, sewers, septic tanks and soil contaminated with sewage.

& # 39; Large coarse alarm. I hope someone can shed some light on what these little worms / larvae / tortuous things are? They look dark gray, & the woman said.

& # 39; Our toilet is the cleanest in the five years that we have lived here and never let it appear, which I find so bizarre.

& # 39; Where can they come from? I also always scrubbed under the edge and used bleach. These were after I turned in the toilet and left it for a few hours, so they are super powerful little creatures. Do you have ideas to get rid of it forever? & # 39;

Many people suggested their DIY tips to clean the pipes.

& # 39; You can regularly treat them with bleach and flush the toilet several times after treatment & someone suggested.

& # 39; Pour the bicarb down your drain every day, followed by a kettle of boiling water for a week and make sure you use every tap that is not often used at least three times a week with hot water.

# They often happen with septic tanks, especially if the tank needs to be emptied because these worms normally live in compost heaps. But they also like dirty sewers. & # 39;

The woman said that the worms only appear after she cleans the toilet and then they disappear so she believes she & # 39; disrupts them & # 39 ;.

& # 39; I only use the toilet brush with bleach and let it sit between the seat and the edge of the toilet until it is dry and I am not on a site with a septic tank, rain bin or anything else & she said.

& # 39; We are on normal Jagerwater – we had real drainage flies in our shower from the same bathroom when we pulled in our house from our shower drain, and then sorted out pest control and had it again about six weeks ago when I had a large toilet scrub & Scalex did.

The woman is one of many who fought to control this pest, whereby the larvae and flies often also occur in showers.

& # 39; When we first came to our house, my husband was taking a shower and I'm not kidding, he jumped so bloody fast when they came down through the shower head. I never see him move so fast in my life, & a woman said.

The process of removing them can be tricky, but if you want to try the job without a professional, experts have shared a detailed removal method here.
