I’ve got two bugs that have invaded my appartment. And no others in my building. Not bed bugs thankfully. But I’m wondering if I should be worried. Here is a pic of the first one.
Though we thought this creature somewhat resembled a Silverfish, we wanted to run it by Eric Eaton before responding to you. Here is Eric’s comment.

That is a (dead, shriveled?) silverfish or firebrat. They are generally a nuisance more than a real pest, but they like to eat starchy materials. They can be a real pain in libraries where they eat the dried glue in book bindings.
