shortly after I moved in I began seeing these guys around my apartment, I’ve seen them in the light shades on the ceiing, the bathtub, dresser drawers and once I found one in my sheets! Their number isn’t scary enough to alarm me and I haven’t experienced any bites or anything like that, but I’m curious why I have so many non rent paying dwellers.
They seem to almost disintegrate when squished. this could be a very obvious response, but I haven’t met anyone who could tell me what they are.. and if I should be worried.
Thanks in advance,

You have Silverfish, a common household pest that can be very difficult to eliminate. They eat a wide variety of foods, including the starch in book bindings and in wallpaper glue. If your apartment has wallpaper, they are most likely feeding on the glue as well as stray food they might find.
