What are some kinds of tiny worm like bugs with many legs?


Answer by  Kaleigh (20)

Millipedes and centipedes are both insects which appear and move in a worm-like fashion. The garden variety of centipede has fifteen pairs of legs. Millipedes have even more legs. They can possess up to 130 pairs of legs which adds up to 250 legs in all.

Technically, no "bug" has more than six legs. You are probably seeing millipedes or centipedes. Rolly pollys or pill bugs are another possibility. Depending on your situation, you might be seeing caterpillars which have leg like extensions of their abdomen. We really need more information to say for sure.

There are no known worm species with legs. However, there are some insects that have a similar shape to worms that have legs. You are most likely thinking of centipedes and or millipedes.

Spirobolida...a type of millipede attracted to wet environments. I live in northern NY and they appear when we get a lot of rain.

Answer by  TwoToneDodge (2204)

Millipeds are dark brown worm like bugs with many tiny legs. They have a curved roundish body. Another worm like insect is a centeped, though these ones are a bit flatter and less worm like.


Answer by  Bsjinx (97)

The best known kinds of bugs with many legs are centipedes and millipedes. The former may have dozens of legs, and the latter may have hundreds. (Both names are slightly off- centipedes don't have 100 legs and millipedes don't have a thousand. )
