Does anyone know what kind of bug this is? And how to get rid of it? I keep finding them in the bathtub. They are very tiny and slow moving. I can not tell if they have wings. Here are some pictures. It was hard to get a picture since they are so little.
Looks like silverfish. They like water and paper.
Prevention is the best medicine! A dehumidifier helps, as does getting rid of paper and cardboard. There is a good natural, safe way to get rid of them described here:

I just moved into an apartment and have been super worried about bed bugs. I have found two of these guys so far and I don't know what they are.If you could give me your perspective, I would appreciate it!
This is a young Oriental cockroach.
I found this guy on my sock. Anyone know what it is?
This is a beetle that has come from outside or it is one that lives in carpets. You'll need to get rid of them if you find more around your home.
It doesn't have the right pattern for the carpet beetles we get.
It looks more like a grape leaf beetle. Are you in the US? They are not in season here yet, at least where I am, so I hesitate to say for sure.
Post back where you are located and that may help.
I found this little guy this morning. Honestly it looks less harmful until I zoomed in on him. I found him on my bathroom floor in Arizona.
The bug is in the cockroach family. Some people confuse these roaches with waterbugs. I would set out roach traps to trap them and get them out of your home before they lay eggs and you have a horrible mess to learn up.
I also believe it is in the roach family and the bathroom and kitchen are usually where they love to live.
You may have just brought this one home in a grocery bag or there may be others hiding in 'damp' areas. Either way you need to work fast to keep them from multiplying.
I would suggest you go to either an Ace or True Value Hardware store and ask for help as they will have natural remedies to get you started - and - they usually have knowledgeable people to work with you.
I found it crawling on my arm, then again across a pillow. It crawls really fast.
It looks like a carpet beetle, or some type of beetle!
This is not a bed bug so you are fine. it is a beetle that has come from outside to get warm. You need to really do a deep cleaning of your rugs and then take the cleaner outside and dump the contents in the trash to get rid of them.
I found this on my pillow and now I'm super freaked out. Can someone help me figure out what this is?
I have seen these on the ground of my wrap around porch, siding of my house and now inside the house in bathrooms and along window trim. Is this something I should get an exterminator for?
Hi, does anyone know what bug this is? I've only found one and it was in my bed but it disappeared as soon as I moved after I took the picture so I'm kinda worried now. Many thanks!
The most important question is how to get rid of it, it's all over my bed and comes outside in dark. Even changing the bedsheets doesn't help.
If these are all over your bed and they come out at night then you have a bad case of bed bugs and you will need to get rid of the bed to start off with, clean the home you are living in, and maybe even get pest control to come out and spray your home. it sounds like you have a bad infestation of bed bugs and they have been there for quite some time.
What kind of bug is this? I found a couple on the wall next to window, one on my bed, and one crawling on my hand. Can someone suggest to me what is this and whether this is harmful and what precautions to take?
This looks a lot like a termite. Are you seeing piles of wood or shavings around you home that are not explained?
I would take it to the hardware store if you have one opened and have them check. If that is what you have, people will tell you homemade remedies work. I do not beleive them and sadly this is one place where me (who is totally anti chemical), calls in the experts.
Post back what you learn!
This looks like a dust mite or what some call dust bugs. They sort of look like termines at first but if you can blow them up large enough you will see they are a dust bug. They can be found in window cells, on beds, and even crawling on you. Some think they are bed bugs because they almost have the same shape and size.
Hi! I just made an account for this site purely for this reason. I left home for about a week and came back to find these bugs have decided to camp out here while I was gone. I live on the west coast in a rainforest-like area so it's damp and we are currently in a heat wave, if that helps.
I've seen six in the past hour and tried to kill them all. I only noticed in my room because I was trying to sleep so it's easier to concentrate on them. They jump and fly and I think they only have two sets of wings but they're super fast so i could be wrong. seem to be attracted to my laptop light. I got a few photos but again, very fast. Any help is appreciated
I found these under my plant stand. They kind of look like really skinny rollie pollies.
There are several similar bugs but the pill bug- roly/poly - rolly/pollies are one of the very few bugs that roll into a ball.
It does appear you have one of these but they are called 'nuisance' bugs' because they usually do no harm to people or plants.
They are sometimes called 'garbage bugs' because they feed on decaying matter in your yard and many people just leave them alone as they are usually considered 'helpful' to yard waste.
They can be a pest if found in your home but can be easily vacuumed away.
If several are found in your home then you may have some cracks around your doors, windows, AC units, etc that invites them in.
This is Armadillidiidae , better known as Pill Bug or Roly Poly (Polies). they are popular garden dwellers eating plant life and decay matter. They love moist damp areas. Here is a link to this insect - en.wikipedia.org/
