please help figure out what this is!
I find this bug in my master bathroom. It’s always crawling on the wall, only one by itself but i’ll see it once or twice a week. Sometimes it’s on the wall of my bedroom. Any idea what it is? Please!!!

Hi Nancy,
We have received several requests in recent weeks to identify a Silverfish, but we have not posted a new image of a Silverfish since it was Bug of the Month in March 2007. Silverfish are primitive insects that can become established in homes and become household pests. They are usually found in dark damp areas and they are known to damage books by feeding on the organic glue and sizing in the binding and also do damage to wallpaper. They eat many forms of dry organic matter and will also feed on sugar, flour, breakfast cereals, fabrics and insulating materials.
