What Is This?!

BLB

I got a piece of driftwood that I have been soaking outside in a tub for about a week now and these little worm like creatures appeared a couple of days after wards and have not died or let go of the wood. What are they and are they harmful?

Did you find the wood or buy it? Could they be grubs burrowed into the wood if u found it... I can’t see them very well on my phone... can u do a real close up of them

I found it ... it is the perfect length for my tank. Here are some more pics... not sure if they are any better.

Seems like they could b grubs or larvae... can you boil it or boil pots of water and pour some on it. Do you know what type of wood it is? In your first pics it appeared to look a bit rotted. Ide be careful wit that piece especially if it has those burrowing out of it

I may just throw it out because it creeps me out. Lol. It is too big to boil. I could pour boiling water over it, but it would take multiple pots and trips to fill the tub with it. So, tossing it, may be the way I go.

I agree. Better to be safe than sorry
