|This little White/Greyish pests in found in and around my home and plants surrounding. I can't identify what is it and how to effective prevent and manage their present.
It is about size of 4~5mm length and width of about 2mm. White and greyish powderish body when touch. Hardly seen them in motion but it's found in my bathroom wall, planter area and walls and on corridors walls. Usually found alone and not cluster with others of the similar.
I am feeling disturbed and don't know how to manage them.
Will appreciate your kind assistant and advise.

I'm really not sure but I wonder if it might be a moth of some sort. For comparison: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/... and scroll down this page for more images of moth varieties: http://bugguide.net/node/view/...

|They are little coccoons of what are known as case-bearing moths. Just a very small, household moth. There are quite a few different kinds all over the world.
Not harmful or dirty really. Just remove the cases when you see them, put them outside or otherwise dispose of them.
