"The Bundimun at rest resembles a patch of greenish fungus with eyes. Useful in some potions, including Doxycide."
— Description[src]

The Bundimun was a magical beast that was found worldwide.[1]

Description

A Bundimum in Hagrid's hut

It was a greenish,[1] many-eyed pest[2] that fed on dirt. The creature crept under floorboards and behind skirting boards, infesting a houses. Their presence was indicated by the foul stench of decay. The secretions of the Bundimun were extremely acidic and could rot building structures. A large enough infestation could cause a building to collapse as the foundations were rotted away. Scouring Charms could clear out small infestations, but large colonies needed to be dealt with by the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures (Pest Sub-Division). Bundimuns spat out its acidic ooze when annoyed, but when diluted, were used in some magical cleaning solutions.[1]

History

During the 1987–1988 school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Rubeus Hagrid's hut suffered a severe bundimun infestation which Jacob's sibling helped eradicate.[4]
