I live in San Francisco in the near the corner of Tennessee and 18th street and found this bug. Can you please help me identify it? There does not seem to be an active infestation, but I wanted to know for future reference.
This looks like a Silverfish in the order Zygentoma to us.
Thank you for the Email. That looks correct and is a big relief.
They are considered household pests.
Yes, I understand. We have seen a few silverfish around, but compared to when I thought it was a bed bug it seems better to me.
Yes, much better than Bed Bugs.
