lepisma saccharina

friend or foe? (clue: not friend)
silverfish lurking in your house? if you've noticed stained books, fabrics, food, and wallpaper, yep, these little flattened carrot-shaped insects formally known as lepisma saccharina could be living rent-free in your baseboards.

i learned about silverfish by chancing upon a neighborhood newsletter, but you can learn all about these little creeps at http://www.urban-ipm.blogspot.com/ ... or by googling "silverfish"

good, good, something new to worry about. that's just what i needed. (keeps you from realizing there are real things you should be neurotic about!)
