Hi guys can anyone tell me what these are?
They keep coming from the drain or from the wood window sill in the shower.





I thought they where cockroaches but now someone says it's pill bugs.

They look like pill bugs. Just type "pill bug" into Google and you'll see.

There are lots of makes and models of Roaches, but those don't look like Pill Bugs either. The scales on the back don't look as uniform as a pill bugs. But then again, I'm no bug expert.

Def roly-polys. I thought everyone had those things around. They usually hide under rocks and stuff around here (east coast) Seems like they are pretty much everywhere.

That I believe to be a roach/pill bug hybrid. Pill bugs are amphibious, that thing is flatter and moves quicker than a pill bug I know this. To leave whatever body of water in abnormal for pill bug. It is not any shade of gray, has either a milky or transparent yellow color yes? Enhanced speed, flat body, and it DOES NOT roll into a ball yet it is segmented. It is a new hybrid species, I have been looking for a confirmation that these "hybrids"existed else where and were not a mere illusion of the mind, note I can further my research.

Yes well that was a rental, i am glad to be out of there. The problem was leaks and wood around the house which became infested with these bugs. The bathroom had wood in the shower.
