I Found A Very Small Black Worm Suctioning Its Way Across My Computer Screen. It Was Less Than A Quarter-inch Long, Barely Visible. Is This Worm Dangerous? Can It Enter My Skin Or Cause Parasites If Ingested?

It can suction? I think that it is a leech. I am not a bug expert, but usually, a black, suctioning worm is a leech. It is not very, very dangerous. It can't "enter" your skin. Do not eat it! I read in a book that you can get rid of it carefully by using a cigerate lighter, but be careful with that.

I am having the same problem! I just saw 2 on my screen! I wonder if its attracted to the inside of the computer because its warm?

Could they be baby inchworms? How did they move?  If they are inchworms, they they are harmless.

The static on the computer screen could make tiny bugs float.

I think if you can see the bug, then it is too big to burrow inside you.

As for eating them, well I don't think too many studies have been done on inchworms (if they are inchworms), so I have no idea. Just don't eat them.
