And it's safe to say...

The cause of them is super creepy.

With the cold weather setting in, more creepy crawlies will be making their way into our homes for shelter...

And when it comes to creepy crawlies, there’s nowhere more terrifying than Australia.

The animal inhabitants are unlike anything we've got here in the US...

Down under, they seem to have danger around every single corner.

Honestly, whenever you hear about some terrifying creature from the animal kingdom...

You can bet the story takes place in Australia, and this latest story is no exception.

One woman was left pretty scared after noticing something odd growing on her bathroom wall...

A strange formation had appeared on the wall that wasn't there the day before.

With no idea what it could possibly be...

She posted a picture of the strange-looking brown structures clung to her white tiles.

People started to comment on her picture pretty quickly...

And the reason why is terrifying.

She wrote on the Facebook page in hopes someone could identify it...

Asking: "What should I do? These are on the bathroom wall."

The first lot of advice she received didn't sound promising...

Many members were totally baffled by the brown blobs.

Some even suggested she should "run", "sell up", and simply to "move home."

Comforting.

But eventually, she was given an answer...

The weird blobs actually belonged to a mud-dauber wasp.

Still slightly scary...

Professor Dieter Hochuli, an ecologist and University of Sydney professor, said they are relatively harmless.

But what happens inside is a different story...

He said: "They make a living by catching spiders where they paralyse and seal them in their muddy, clay nests."

Yep, we're terrified...

"They then lay eggs inside the nests and once born, their wasp babies will eat the dead spiders until they can chew their way out of the muddy nest as adults."

He advised against spraying the nests...

And said the wasps have a "nasty sting" if you're unfortunate enough to get stung.

He said you should instead move the nests elsewhere...

When the wasps are not in or around the nest, obviously.

I think I'd just move out.
