Hello, and thanks for using the Ask an Expert System,

I cannot be certain of the identity of the organism in your photo. It appears to be a centipede, but I would need a closer sharp photo to be sure.

You can find information on house centipedes in a Penn State Extension fact sheet House Centipedes. I realize that your photo does not match the house centipede photo in the article, but you might find the control measures to be helpful.

For a positive ID take a sample of the critter to your nearest Penn State Extension Office.
