What is this worm/caterpillar-like thing?

Charleroi, PA

I have a bunch of these out on my back porch, and even notice a good bit of them in my basement (dead most of the time, but some are alive) and rarely, in my Kitchen (which also has a door to the back porch). I'm not entirely sure where they're coming from either, or what they are, what they do, etc.

No idea why they exhibit this behavior, but have heard of similar observations elsewhere.
