Silverfish are nocturnal creatures, and require a high humidity environment. They move fast and tend to go unnoticed. They tend to be found in basements, attics and garages.

Food Source

Silverfish tend to feed on paper items, glue, clothing and food items, such as flour and rolled oats. Silverfish can live up to a year without food provided that they have high moisture conditions.


While silverfish are mainly a nuisance pest, they can contaminate food and damage paper goods such as wallpaper and books.
