Identifying a Tiny Grey-ish Bug in the Tub?

Identifying a Tiny Grey-ish Bug in the Tub?I have been seeing these in my bathtub for the second day now, in a row. They are pretty tiny, move fast, but don't necessarily look like a silverfish. I sprayed it with eucalyptus oil and it died instantly. Any ideas what it could be?

Hi there! Thanks for your response. I did some more digging and it actually fits the characteristics of a spring tail. I started spraying my shower with Eucalyptus after bathing to keep them away.

Thanks again!

The image is a bit hard to see but from what I can make out this is a bug box silverfish.
