It's a common thing to find in houses that have both mice and rice. Yep, found a bunch of these in my shower the other day (Yikes!!!) I then realized they were crawling very slowly. This is kinda embarrassing because my father was a very well known entomologist however he passed 2 years ago My go to man would have loved this challenge, but I am sure he would know at first glance what they are. Our first inclination is that this is a food stash. Thanks for the comment.
Dr. James R. Copped get was my father. Sorry. If you do find anything; don’t mess with it just yet. I’m certain that I did not put seeds in these drawers. I have never seen this cross before—and we both looked at each other and basically said...this is a God moment! I would actually recommend an exterminator. Early Monday morning, I’m searching for a pair of dark underwear in a set of plastic drawers in my closet—and lo and behold, I find another pile of rice in the corner of the drawer. Today I found a pile of these black eggs nestling in the folds of a clean but not recently used bathmat.
Something eats thru a heavy plastic food storage bag and eats my granola bar stash that I keep in my nightstand.
I came home last night to find what looked like poppy seeds on my bed (right on top of the sheet). Perhaps a mouse or other rodent is stockpiling seeds in anticipation of lean times in the future. and yes, when you squeeze them there is some kind of embryo thingy in them. Look up and down the street for bird feeders, this could have come from some distance away. I notice some were lighter so I picked it up an when applied pressure to see how hard they were it actually had fluids came out almost looking sorta like a maggot, but one thing for sure these are not seeds but more like some sort of living creature. I believe they are moths.
How long did it take these mystery things to accumulate? I found these in two separate drawers in my house. Your email address will not be published. What's That Bug? Mice at work?

God has now convinced my doubting husband that He indeed is sending us a message. It seems it looks like Black Seeds to me.
I’ve seen this one before, and I am sorry to report that I can confirm WTB’s analysis that you have a rodent.
What are these things found in the Drawers??? There is a cat door maybe 5 feet from that bathroom, don’t know if the cat drug something in or what but they were only in the shower and there must have been a hundred in there.
Pantry moths start out like that. Lighter color, but they attached themselves to the utensils in small groups.
When I pulled out the shoes, another ¼ cup of rice fell out of the shoes onto the floor. I don't want to rule out anything either religious or rational in this and mostly I'm just trying to find if anyone has heard of or can give some insight into what this might all be. We’ve had these climb into drawers before and store seed meant for finch feeders. Were they empty drawers or were there other things in the drawers like stored food or clothing? Hmmm....did mice do that, I wondered? Did a little more research, seems it is the Hessian fly in it’s “Flaxseed stage”. does not endorse extermination.
yes, and then make sure you update!!!!!!! There is snow on the ground outside, so my gut tells me it may be a squirrel or chipmunk, but haven’t heard any noises nor have we found any acorns. We have setup mouse traps and will continue to setup more, but again we only find seeds and no droppings. Needless to say still very grossed out about it & got rid of it as quickly as possilble. You can get yourself a trap (a humane or live trap if that suits you better) to verify, and put see if you can catch the little bugger.
NO sign of mice or more rice anywhere. It ends not here...the next day we discover a pile of rice in another bedroom closet on top of a shelf while searching for something I needed for the next day. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. A little context to fill in the story.
Found in drawers Location: Western North Carolina April 17, 2011 8:13 am I found these in two separate drawers in my house. Especially true for voles as they cover large areas and seem comfortable gaining access to a … Not seeds, I have no idea what they are, my house is super clean.
Two days later, when emptying out a shoe bag in another bedroom closet, I grabbed a pair of closed toe sandals that had been languishing in the bag for a couple of years. Found the same things in my kitchen drawer. This looks exactly like nyger (thistle) seed, that a mouse might collect. My aunt was recently diagnosed with cancer a month or so ago. Signature: Creeped out in NC. Her reasoning is because it was somewhere she would find it. April 17, 2011 8:13 am They are smaller than grains of rice, and maybe the layer of these ‘eggs’ left some kind of residue on the utensils as well, as I noticed they, too, had some kind of ‘ickiness’ feel to them. They didn't clean it up because they are religious people and wanted to see what the deal was. We are providing a link to the Kansas State University site page on the Hessian Fly or Barley Midge which states: “Hessian flies overwinter as full-grown larvae or maggots inside protective cases called flaxseed because of their resemblance to real flax seeds.” The site explains the origin of the common name: “Though a native of Asia it was transported into Europe and later into North America, supposedly in the straw bedding of Hessian troops during the American Revolution (1775–83).” We do not believe the objects in the images of our posting are Hessian Fly larvae, but we cannot weigh in on what you have found.
Next, I’d get some fresh birdseed and place it in the basement, near where you have found some seed piles, to see if you can lure anything to start “feeding” inside and not just storing.
Feeling something creepy in the bottom of a boot, I pulled it off and promptly dumped about ¼ cup of rice out onto the floor. While they look like seeds, I can assure you they are not seeds.
