    Adam and Luna, if I had known I would have sold him to the highest bidder. As it is I put him out the window. At least it’s a beautiful day to find a new home. Dmansouri, they can’t climb as well as their roachy brethren. I skooted him into a glass water pitcher for his photo shoot and he couldn’t climb that at all.

    dmansouri: “Why are they always trapped in the sink or the tub?”

    It’s the water: hey hang out in moist areas and proliferate like mad during really humid spells (a dehumidifier will mess them up good).

    I always incorrectly called these silver fish. They freak me out even though they do no harm. Anything with that many legs and antennae that move that quickly is creepy.

    I had one of these once, many years ago, and it scared me at the time. I had no idea what it was until recently when some people were discussing it in a bar, of all places. Have these things become popular because of bedbugs?

    Yes, their Q rating is way up because they are preferable to bedbugs, Goggla. :) From what I’ve learned since posting this, their fangs are too tiny to break human skin, but I still wouldn’t have them as co-residents in my apartment.
