Hey all,

Im posting this for a buddy of mine that lives in Poland.

He has a small flat and he is a clean person no doubt... But he showed me some bugs in his flat well it seems there are 4 kinds...

1. Cockroaches ( im sure these are normally all over the world )

2. In the bathroom he has these strange small grayish /white centipedes that wiggle around and seem pretty fast little buggers..

3. Some peachy color small moths ...?

4. In winter time there are some small very small black beetles ..??

If any of you have seen the above before or any other type of nasty bastards.. please tell us more.

We must fight to save the human race...

That looks like a silverfish to me - harmless and usually live in damp dark areas: under baths, in unlit fireplaces etc.

Its not out of dirt. They don't spread any diseases. If they once inhabit your bathroom then they are there for good. There are some specificts that can make the amount of them lesser. i know that they like to eat sugar so people gives poison with suger.

Also cats like to eat them.

O also have them but have no idea who the hell they are. They live inder my carpet but don't see them often.

3. Some peachy color small moths ...?

a cloth-moth? or a food-moth? (food moth likes flour, grains etc). there are methods for both of that.

Sounds like they are just young regular black beetles to me. They like damp.

But how do you kill em...?

30 Sep 2010 #19
for mól spożywczy your friend has to throw away everything which has its eggs (white little balls) and stick some special anti-moth sticker in the cupboard

Then my buddy was trying to smack 3 moths dead while they flew around the room ..... damn its like a war there !! He told me when he takes a shitt on the toilet when he looks at the floor while he is on the toilet he killed three of those centipedes...

it looks like your friend is renting an old place. I would have the owner of the place debug it, or move to another apartment. Sounds like the place was infested before he/she moved in.

Hi , yes i think it is around a 1980 block he is on the 4th floor and the door near his flat is the rubbish drop off in the building :-(

He said last year there were not so many bugs , now its going crazy he said the roaches even live in the fridge and freezer ..and they dont die in there !!!

the infestation must be coming from another unit/s then. I think the owner should know.

That will be those pesky Russian bugs , snook over the border , they love the icey conditions in the fridge....

We reckon there could be one more type of bug but its not confirmed yet, as his girlfriend woke up with 5 red dots ( bites ) under her arm. It could have been a spider or something else but i think its some bigger white color centipede which is bigger than the ones in the bathroom .. i read that some bigger centipedes can bite...

never heard about such monster... But there are white worms with a black dod on its end (an eye?) which lives in walls. But it doesn't bite

there are sometimes skorki or szczypawy (looks like little scorpions) living in wood and they can pinch with tail:

In the UK we call this an earwig...they like to live in dark damp places...

Those white worms I mentioned before are larves of big flies (mucha robacznica). Does it look more less like it: wp-content/uploads/2009/04/larwa.jpg

yeah it looked like that but it was white i think ...

so I have no idea what it can be. Skorek is of red-brown colour
