It is found in my apartment in Finland. I had to kill it to stop it from getting away before looking for the camera, but it looked pretty much the same alive and intact. It's length is about half a centimeter, and the younger ones look darker. It is often found in dark. Since their appearance, I often notice red and slightly itchy bug bite in the morning. The question is what is this insect?

  • $\begingroup$ Where in your apartment did you find them (what environment)? $\endgroup$ – fileunderwater Jan 27 '14 at 21:55
  • $\begingroup$ @fileunderwater I don't know where did they come from, but they are just found on the wood and ceramic floors. The environment is warm and reasonably dry. $\endgroup$ – agriprop Jan 28 '14 at 7:04

It reminds me of silverfish, a common wingless house insect.

  • $\begingroup$ yeah, my first idea as well, and the environment fits. I first thought that the legs looked a bit long though. However, environment + movement patterns is a good way to identify them by. $\endgroup$ – fileunderwater Jan 28 '14 at 13:56
