Anyone know what these little fellas are?

Since moving to Donabate, I've been finding these little guys all over my apartment - bathroom, running about kitchen worktops - everywhere.

Anyone know what they are / how to get rid of them?

Clothes and especially paper. Check for any dampness in bathrooms or kitchens. Normally live around those areas, maybe under sinks etc

Fly spray is a most effective killer of those things. Spray plenty in the morning along the floor and skirting boards before going to work and find them all nice and dead when you get home. Simples!

theres a very good silver fish spray/ powder on amazon - you put it down at night then in morning they all dead- i did three goes of it and sorted the problem they can be very hard to get rid off,

keep kids away from the powder- dont think its that nasty but dosen'tdo the silver fish any good !
