are those organisms fungi? ClO2 is a pretty strong oxidising agent. Perhaps..

One of them are worms and they are breathing through all surface of his body. Is it possible to destroy with ClO2 this kind of organisms?

i would suggest you to experiment with one worm.

That would be pretty cruel, I'm almost positive that Cl02 will kill the worm, it is a fairly strong agent, what's the formula for bleach by the way?

Bleach is a solution of sodium (or calcium depending on your location) hypochlorite.

Sodium hypochlorite is NaOCl.
Calcium Hypochlorite is Ca(OCl)2.

In either case, the active compound is the hypochlorite ion ClO-.  

Bleach also has some sodium hydroxide in there to keep the pH at an elevated level since sodium hypochlorite is formed by the action of chlorine gas on some sodium hydroxide.  At low pH, the equillibrium is in favor of chlorine gas and NaOH.  At high pH, the equillibrium rests on the side of sodium hydroxide.

So in a typical bottle of Chlorine Bleach, you have mostly water with about 5% on average sodium hypochlorite, some sodium chloride, and some sodium hydroxide.

ClO2 is an unstable gas, very reactive at light, "normal" valence numbers for chlorine are +-1,+3,+5,+7: in ClO2 the valence number for chlorine is +4
I think it's a chlorinating agent, as IO2 and ICl2 are Iodinating agents.

Tyson (the chicken company) uses ClO2 for decontaminating and sterilizing their chickens before shipment.  So, yes, it's an incredibly powerful fungicide/germicide/viricide.
