    Hi I found this dead bug in my pillow a couple of weeks ago, I never got bites prior to seeing it. I was working a summer program at a university so I was living in the dorms for a week. After seeing the dead bug I've gotten bit on the legs a few times. Please let me know what you think

    It looks most like a silverfish.
    You posted elsewhere and I said to look under this one for an answer.

    Thank you for you response I appreciate it! 1 last question and hopefully this can resolve my sleepless nights. I woke up with this on my bed could it be a bed bud?
