This specie is too easy to find specially in houses, in some dark places, they go away from the light and they are very faster. When I saw this specie I can looked that this specie is very still they don´t move unless you light them or you try to touch it. They are in moisture places, this is one of the first characteristics of the silverfish yo can call it too like moisture insects they are produce by that.
