Firebrat

6815.        Recently moved into an apartment on the 19th floor of a well maintained, 1960s concrete tower and have found a couple of these insects in the bathroom on the floor. The floor and wall surfaces are all tile. The entire apartment was renovated 5 years ago. Curious what it may be. Vancouver, BC. Canada

Number 6815. This is a firebrat, Thermobia domestica (Zygentoma: Lepismatidae), or a close relative. These are peridomestic nuisance pests that seldom do any real harm. Click here for more detailed information.
