Unidentified bedroom bug

Hi all,

         During the past 2 weeks I have seen 2 of these in my mother's bedroom, both dead.  This morning I found one in my room.  Here is what happened....    I have been getting a few bites at night, unusual for me.  Yesterday I disturbed a small flying insect from under a chest of drawers, but could not catch it.  I thought this was the insect that was biting me since last night I had 3 small bites on my ankle while watching TV, the room being fairly dark.  So I sprayed the room with fly killer, and this morning I found the bug in the picture not quite dead, on the wooden floor of my room.  It was about 4mm long.  The photo shows it lying on kitchen towel!  It's underbody was quite a pale colour.  Any ideas anyone?

    Try googling Silverfish - very common but doesn't bite, so not your attacker!!
