I came hope last night and was washing my hands in the sink. This big bug with lots of legs came out of the drain. I am living with my daughter so I called her and she said she has seen a few. In the bathroom only. It looked sort of like a cenapead (not sure how you spell it), She said if you smash it the other pieces go in different directions. This bug was about 2" long. Does anyone know what kind of bug this could be? I killed a bigger centapead in the living room the other day. The new bug did not look like a centapead. HELP

Did it look like this? If so, it's a common house centipede. They live most of their lives in houses, and prey on other bugs that are smaller than them. They're mildly venomous (less than a bee), but really aren't a concern unless you are allergic.

I get these creepy things too in my house when it rains, eeeeek! They seriously freak me out and are fast little suckers too! I just hit them with a shoe, but does anyone know how to stop them from coming in my house?

Spray the perimeter of the house with a good bug spray every 6-12 months. It does a good job of keeping the bugs out.

I've had a problem with boxelder bugs coming into the apartment when the weather starts to get cool in the fall. Other than those, mosquitoes are the only other thing that bothers to come indoors.

It may be a species of cockroach.
