I have no clue what they are but they are getting worse and now in every room. I saw them moslty at nighttime and I find them in my ceilings in my bathtub! I am so grossed out and need help!

They are long and skinny with a hit of red to their backs. They are super hard to kill and even found they seem to survive in water! They have pointers on their backs and eyes in the front. They are super narrow and seem to crawl on top of everything furniture, etc. I didn't see any outside. They started two weeks ago and now It is so bad!!!!!

Can you take a picture of them to post here?? Maybe someone will know what they are.

Also, do you have an empty, clear jar that you can catch some in? At least you'll have something to show an exterminator so they'll know what they're dealing with. FYI...I use Hometeam Pest. They are very thorough. Their
#'s 704-509-9525.

I hope you get rid of them soon!!!!
