Pinworms are white: Don't know what the "dark" things might be, but it's easy to find out. One can get a lab order form for a "stool O & P" test from his doctor. The lab will give the patient little plastic containers. At home, the patient puts some stool into a container (regardless of whether or not he sees anything unusual in the stool). Then, the lab can process the stool sample and look at it with a microscope.
