Silver FishSilver FishSilver Fish

Silverfish Bugs are about 1/2 inch blue-silver wingless insects with hard exoskeleton. They look like fish and their movements are very similar. They have 2 long antennas on their head and 3 prominent “tails” on rear. Females’ egg numbers vary. Depending on species, their quantity may range from 2 to 20 eggs per day. Silverfish can lay eggs at any season of the year and grow from larva to adult in 3-4 months. Silverfish feed on mold, fungi and carbohydrates (such as sugars, starch or cellulose). This means that your food (especially dry foods), clothes, shampoos, soaps, books, wallpaper, plants and many other things are in danger. Though the insects may be found almost anywhere, they prefer dark, moist, moderate temperature areas and places with good sources of food. Unless the food is gone, they remain close to its supply. Therefore, the usual silverfish habitats are: bathrooms kitchens laundry rooms attics basements They are commonly found in/under sinks, bathtubs, in storage boxes, bookcases, old stacks of papers (magazines, newspapers, etc.), on closet shelves, behind wallpaper, wall voids, window or door frames, and baseboards. The bugs just love the taste of starch in book bindings, paper on which there’s glue or paste, various fabrics, bathroom products, cereals, flour, crumbs and plant materials.
