Identifying Household Bugs?

We bought a drawer and we found these bugs inside it, like three or four. Any idea what are these bugs? And how to get rid of them?

Thank you :)

This bug is in the silverfish family. Over the counter spray will fix them!

If it is fuzzy it is a sprigtail, smooth a silverfish. They --both-- like fiber, paper, moisture, and dark places. Get rid of the food sources, a dehumidifier helps, vacuum and clean and they usually go away. We get them every spring if I have too many boxes in the basement. When I toss extra cardboard and run the dehumidifier they disappear. I never need any chemical treatment.

I'm not sure about this bugs but if they were confined to the one drawer then you may be able to just treat that drawer or kill those bugs and never see them again.


I do not believe it is a spring tail as the spring tail has 2 antennas and usually has a 'distinct' head.

Not sure about silverfish but there are so many varieties it could be difficult to identify but probably in the same type of family.

If you continue to see more of these I would suggest you send pictures to your county extension service and ask for their advice.
