What Are Silverfish?
Silverfish are a flat, wingless, white to grey (silver) colour insect, that are very quick on their feet and have a distinctively “prehistoric” look about them.
Mainly active at night, they prefer to live in dark and damp places by day and feed at night. They can often be found in bathrooms, laundries and kitchens where the conditions are perfect for them to live.
Live evidence of their existence can often be found in bathtubs, sinks or wash basins because they fall in and are unable to climb out.
They eat materials and foods that are high in protein, sugar and starch. Some of the items that can often be eaten by silverfish are books, wall paper, starched clothes, rayon fabrics, glue, bookbinding’s, paper, photographs, cereals, leather and even dead insects. They can go without food for several months.
