I Keep Finding Tiny Caterpillar Looking Insects That Are Black And Have A Hard Shell And Curl Up When Touched.?

They are not beetles as everyone keeps trying to tell me. They are small..about an inch or so, but very thin and proportionately long like a caterpillar, but thinner. They are inside my home.
I live in the northeast US.

Best Answer

Millipedes. You may want to call an exterminator to find out why you are infested as they like damp, dark and rotting places.
