Ewwwwwwwwwww! What is it???

Last night and then today I've found the most disgusting bug in our house. One was large and one was small AND they were in different rooms. There could be more!
They almost look like a centipede, but without as many legs. They have the same shaped body and they look hairy. I mean like long curly hairs. They are DISGUSTING!!!! Thank God they don't crawl fast or I'd be too skeeved out to kill them. UGHHHHHHH! What ARE these things?? Does anybody know?
I know, this is the wrong section to put this in, but I want as many ppl to see this as possible. Somebody help!

  • There are some bugs like this that will give you a rash if you touch them. You might want to be careful and not let your kids touch them. My son got a bad rash.

  • I agree with Gailll. It sounds like a type of caterpillar and the hairs will cause a rash if they are touched. I used to get them all the time when i lived in Vermont.

  • Were they near a source of water? Laundry room/restroom? We got huge silverfish @ our old place. Kinda sounds like them. I guess that's what they were...idk really. They looked like centipedes too. My kids called em creepy crawly bugs!
