    I noticed a few bugs on my bathroom floor, photos at the link below. They appear to be nocturnal, so I don't see them too often during the day. I think they live in tiny holes in the bathroom baseboards.

    Can anyone ID these for me? It would help me decide how to deal with them.

    Thanks in advance!

    I think you're right, it looks exactly like this:

    Sounds like they're mostly harmless.

    Thanks!

    Woodlouse. This one can't roll up into a sphere.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.
