Commonly referred to as carpet sharks or fish moths. They are agile runners and can outrun most of their predators (including wandering spiders and centipedes). However such running is only possible on horizontal surfaces, as they lack any additional appendages and, therefore, are not fast enough to climb walls at the same speed.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR:
Droppings – small “pepper-like”droppings.
Sightings – in basins, drawers & behind desks.
Prefer warm humid areas such as kitchens and bathrooms and are attracted to paper and feed on silk,
linen, shampoo and carbohydrates.
