Silverfish

Forky tail otherwise known as an earwig

Zenun

Silverfish



Zenun is right also theres alot of names for them. Nitemare to get rid of tho theyre indestructible. You can step on one theyll just slink off. Good news is theyre harmless but theyre bloody annoying. They love damp areas. Poison is the only thing thatl get rid

Silverfish we had them in our house when we moved in we put ant powder all around the skirting boards etc everyday after that when we woke up we would keep finding loads of dead ones till eventually we didn't see them anymore not seen one now for around 3 years.

Had a lot of these in my halls at uni, mainly in the en suite. Never found a solution to get rid completely, but found leaving en suite door open reduced humidity and so was less likely to see them.

I can't sleep now, just about threw up. X)

Looks like a silver fish

Don't put the light on at night then or you will see all its buddies

If you have children or pets use Diatomaceous Earth food grade powder instead of harmful insecticides, it's a mechanical pesticide with no toxins or poisons. Its akin to walking on glass for them, it also dehyrIf it falls on your food, no problem! Great for eliminating ants, or fleas from your pets but good enough to eat. Sorry to labour this point it must be FOOD GRADE.

Drop a spoonful on the floor then create a cloud dust by banging it. Don't inhale the dust. Let it fall and it will do it's magic. Google the health benefits.

Good luck. I hate creepy crawlies.
