While making my bed in the morning, this thing came out from between the sheets! Moving (slithering) very fast - my husband was able to get it with the dust buster and dumped it out on a paper towel for the photo shoot thinking it was dead, apparently it was just stunned because as I snapped the picture, it visibly came back to life! Yikes!! Is it a centepede?

What is this? Is it a firebrat or something else?

It used to have antennas and has 2 points on its back end. I found it in my bathroom. I'm thinking its a firebrat because the furnace and water heater are in a closet in there. I can't make a positive ID because it didn't look exactly like one, but I thought it could be a very young one. I need to know what it is so I know if I have to exterminate them. I need to know what is it so I know if this was just a single one or if there are much more (if it's a firebrat that is very likely. Please help me! Thank you kindly. Take care.

What is this and does it bite? It is not a fly I know for sure
