Silverfish are insects that can be found all over the world in most areas that are moist and humid. Typically they will be seen in bathrooms, attics, basements, closets and etc.

Silverfish actually are commonly mistaken for firebrats. They have close resemblances but they are not the same. They’re common names come from the color of their scales and also their movement. The movement resembles that of a fish as well as how their abdomens taper at the end like fish. Silverfish are flattened and elongated. They have long antennae and three long and thin appendages that seem like antennae at the rear end of the abdomen. Silverfish completely lack wings and instead use a squirming, wiggling motion to move. They are born creamy white in color and as they molt, they will change from a dark brown to black to silver with a metallic shine color. Keep Reading about Silverfish

How to Get Rid of Silverfish

A silverfish is around 1/2′ long and it is silver. The body is long, slim, and flat. It is wide in the front but gets closer together at the end. Silverfishes moves extremely fast but once the silverfish finds a food source that it likes, it will tend to stay close to it. They are nocturnal so they are active at night or in dark places throughout the structure. An adult silverfish molts it skin throughout the year so it can be something useful in detecting silverfish. They can do damage to book bindings, wallpaper, paper goods, and dry foods. They might eat holes through the wallpaper to get to the glue or bite tiny holes in fabrics (i.e. cotton, linen, and even silk). Silverfish might leave a yellow stain on the fabrics.
