The Bug

We had just arrived home from church. John and I were changing in our room when suddenly all three children started screaming from the living room. My first thought was, "Okay, who did it this time?" I began to head out to check when they burst into my room and slammed the door. Hannah informed us there was a scary, creepy bug on the floor in the living room. She then explained how she found it. She said, "I thought it was a hair ball. Then I got closer and the hair ball had legs and it MOVED!"

We went out to find and capture the bug. Sure enough it was a pretty creepy bug. I have never seen anything quite like it. If anyone can identify this bug I would appreciate it.

Looks like a silverfish. They live in moist places and if you've seen one you probably have lots more. The most environmentally-friendly way to rid your house of these is to use Borax, found in the laundry detergent aisle.

Looks like a mutant cricket with a lot of legs. I would have been screaming too!
