    Hi,

    It's not a bug. Its technically a crustacean or isopod.

    They are extremely common and may also be known as woodlice.

    They tend to be an indication of damp and are not considered to be pests other than in large numbers.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you David.

    If I see one of these every few days in the window, is that a big deal?
    (I'm only renting here for another 6 months)..
    My guess is the wood in the windows is damp or perhaps rotting.

    They crawl great distances and might be coming over from somewhere that is moist and you find them where you find them.
