Hi all, I seem to be harbouring a crop of little silver worm-like creatures in my house - so far i've seen about 4 of them on the kitchen or bathroom floor, only at night. My husband has seen a few too. They are fairly tiny and very fast wiggly things. Never seen anything like them before. can anyone shed any light on the matter, and more importantly, how to get rid of them! thanks

Silverfish? Weird things that live in carpets.
