I have noticed a few of these bugs in my Charleston, IL apartment. I noticed them mostly in the warm summer/fall months, and then hadn’t seen one until today when the weather got warm again. I have been trying to figure out what they are for a while with no luck.
This is a Silverfish, a common household pest. It seems they are getting even more common if the number of identification requests we have received recently is any indication.
