I keep finding them in my house. I was wondering if it means anything...like there is standing water somewhere attracting them.

Its called a "silver fish" and yes, they are attracted to wet, damp areas like bathrooms and such. It generally means that you have a leak, dampness, or standing water somewhere.

That's what I was thinking. Now, I need to figure out why.
