these bugs are so gross and they have been invading my house. i have no idea what they are. we have tried to catch them before but have been unsuccessful becuase they are so so fast. anyway. they are furry. my had has grazed one hiding under the dishwasher handle. i just want to know if anyone might know what they are.



ETA: it was moving to the left. to me it looks like the head is on the right. i wonder if they move backwards. i dont know if this helps any!

THANK YOU!!

YUCK! EWW, EEWW EEEWWW!!!
We live in the woods so I know how gross it can be to battle critters. I found a scorpion in our bedroom two weeks ago. We just have to put up with some of it living here. Thank goodness my DH found a really honest bug guy. Sounds like maybe they have a nest or something. Try to see where it is they are coming from so you can tell a bug guy where they might be reproducing.

Good luck.

i think they are coming from the attic becuase from what i have gathered they like dark damp places and it is dark and apparently damp up there as my roof is leaking. but it also says that it eats spiders and small bugs. i have always thought it was weird that we NEVER see spiders in our house becuase it is drafty (lots of places for the bugs to come in). so now i have to decide between those and spiders. i'm definately afraid of spiders!!!

i think i read that they can be up to an inch and a half. so yes! this one was probably an inch. maybe a little less. but what makes them really gross is they move SO fast. really creepy.

OoO I hate those things. I use to have them in my bedroom at my old house and they scared the crap out of me because the way they looked.

I remember I use to take my son downstairs and sleep. I would sleep on the pull out couch and he would sleep in his playpen.

I was so afraid of sleeping and having them crawl on me and my son EWW.
