Our client has observed long thin worms inside the toilet bowls on several different floors of a high rise office building. I strongly suspect these are horsehair worms. The building has a history of American cockroaches. On occasion American cockroaches have emerged from dry drains and dry toilet bowls on the upper floors. What treatment alternatives are available to solve this situation?
