Found this on my pillow. Please don’t tell me it’s what I think it is.
Signature: Thank you , Derek
The southeast is a large region. This one has us stumped. Its legs are too short to be a Cockroach nymph. We are going to try to contact Eric Eaton to get his opinion since we are not sure how to begin to classify this critter. It is possible that as an immature insect, it does not closely resemble the adult. It is not a Bed Bug nor a Louse. Perhaps one of our readers will write in and supply an answer.
Eric Eaton supplies an identification
No problem. This is a silverfish, or related insect, that is missing both antennae and all three tail filaments. Plus, all the scales have worn off its body.
Thanks for the assistance Eric.
