bugs in the bathrooms

#1
hi

Just wondering if anyone has noticed strange insects in their bathrooms in Block C(black and look like silver fish(apparently thats the word ??), I've only noticed this in the last 3 weeks.

Any thoughts and yes the bathrooms and apartment are regularly cleaned :)

thanks

Hi Nigel,

Yes they are everywhere and are silverfish, completely harmless and they generally scurry around in the dark. They love slightly damp areas such as bathrooms, it doesn't matter how clean the bathroom is you'll still get them, they feed on adhesives, fibres, dead skin, hair and almost anything. The other half hates them, but I generally leave them there as I know if there are a few of them there are no spiders or centipides around which I kill on sight. You'll see them more during warmer weather or mild spells in winter.

Cheers,

L
