Mum left horrified after finding two 'sticks' stuck to ceiling that came 'out of nowhere'

She was totally shocked after making the bizarre discovery

For anyone even the slightest bit house proud, their home is definitely their castle.

Yet, when something unexpected pops up in your place of living, it's sure to cause some concern.

And this was definitely the case for one mum who couldn't believe it when she discovered two 'sticks' fused to her ceiling that seemingly 'came out of nowhere'.

It was just another regular day when one mum noticed two very unexpected guests in her bathroom.

Looking up at her ceiling, the woman clocked two stick-like objects stuck to the ceiling and had no idea where where on earth they came from.

Terrified of the shocking find, the mum reached out online for some help in figuring out exactly what these bizarre objects were and where they came from in the first place.

Desperately seeking some kind of answer, she took to the internet to investigate the peculiar addition to her property, which she rents.

After receiving some intel back, the woman was shocked to find out what the spindly brown 'twigs' growing from her roof actually were.

The mum reached out online to figure out what the 'sticks' were.

Heads up - they were most definitely not sticks.

Something far more skin-crawling, the internet reported back to the mum that the brown growths could be signs of a termite infestation.

One person warned her: "It looks like termites, get your roof checked as soon as possible."

Another mentioned that the presence of such pests can be common in rented properties, explaining: "They are some kind of garden termite, I had them in a rental once."

Many noted that the 'twigs' looked like termite tracks or 'mud tubes' which are the tunnels that the insects use to get around.

Termites are also referred to as 'silent destroyers' for their ability to chew their way through wood, flooring and even wallpaper totally undetected.

According to Pest World For Kids, termites cause more than £4.1 billion ($5 billion) in property damage per year.

For something so tiny, it's pretty impressive just how much damage they can cause.

If you find termites or 'mud tunnels' in your house, you can try to get rid of them using several different DIY methods including applying liquid or foam termiticides to your home's exterior and using essential oils on hotspots to deter them from the area, Architectural Digest suggests.

However people thought that the 'twigs' this woman found nestled in her ceiling could be something else altogether.

"They look like they could be wasp nests," warned one person.

Others theorised that the sticks could just be a matter of some 'bad wiring'.

Whatever they were, it's clear that the discovery was very alarming.
