Have you seen a ghostly-looking roach lurking around your home or business? It is quite rare to see a white roach but not unheard of. Some people call them albino roaches, but there is no such thing as an albino roach. Is this a new species? No, it’s actually just a regular old cockroach that is newly molted. When an insect molts it comes out white and stays that color until the new exoskeleton has time to harden.

Is it a tick or is it a scorpion? Maybe you’ve seen them around and weren’t quite sure what they were. More than likely you’ve seen a pseudoscorpion. This insect is like a really small scorpion without a tail or stinger. They do have venom glands in their claws used to kill food sources such as tiny mites and springtails.

Have you noticed a silvery, metallic, insect around your home? They are called silverfish due to their coloring, fish-like shape, and movements. Some people also refer to them as “bristletails” because of their three long, bristle-like, or tail-like appendages on the rear end of their body. These insects are found throughout most places in the U.S. They especially like moist, humid areas in the home. Even if you have not noticed one of these metallic insects before, it doesn’t mean they aren’t there as they tend to hide from humans. Although they don’t have any wings, they are able to run very fast.
