We have a whole bunch of larvae on our ceiling only. What are they? Where do they come from? What do we do?

Here is a picture.
We live in Brooklyn, NY. Last week we noticed that there were like 10 of these on our ceiling...and ceiling only.
We occasionally have tiny light brown moths, but it doesn't seem like the numbers equal out. Also we've seem the moths for a couple months and never notice these larvae before.
They don't seem to be attracted to food. Maybe attracted to light. We have a ceiling vent but can't easily remove the cover to look.
I have a ton of speculative info, but I really want to know: what are they, where could they be coming from (directionally) and what should we do?
