    I posted a picture on Thursday of a bug that was identified as a female bed bug. Tonight I found this squished on my comforter cover. My tendency is to think it is a squished silver fish as we do have a number of those in the house, but my paranoia is getting the best of me Expert ID would be greatly appreciated

    Yes, you're correct. Squished silverfish. Compare to bed bug pictures so you will understand how different they are from one another.
