What are Silverfish?

Have you ever wondered that when you open a book you found a little and white creature nestled in between the pages? That’s a silverfish. Commonly found in old boxes, drawers and bookshelves, these animals are known to be destructive pests. Silverfish feed on carbohydrates, particularly sugars and starches. They have voracious feeding habits, oftentimes ruining papers, clothes and wallpaper.

Silverfish have been on the earth hundreds of thousands of years previously before dinosaurs. Meaning, insects like them have lived for 400 million years! They are small wingless bugs, with the fish-like appearance and are whitish-grey in colour. They are harmless and there had been no recognised proof that they cause diseases or introduce poison, however, they are considered pests in houses and businesses.

Their presence is sometimes undetected and homeowners frequently transport silverfish indoors unknowingly. Once inside, they find a secure dark and damp place where they can nestle and breed, and over time spread anywhere. These pests will enter homes through base cracks, torn screens, or gaps around doors. Leaving dirty dishes out in the open will also lure silverfish inside. They are not known to spread illnesses but they are capable of triggering allergic reactions in certain people and further damage possessions. Their presence sometimes attracts carpet beetles and causes unease due to their strange appearance.

Great company, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and awesome results. Called Andrew and let him know what we were seeing. Andrew was wonderful, helped me determine what type of creepy crawlers we had in our home and was able to get someone out really quick. Adam came out to treat our apartment for cockroaches and from start to finish I was super impressed. Adam was friendly, answered all my questions, and gave me some insight and tips to help with our problem. Local Pest Control is a reliable and effective company who I won’t hesitate to call again! Highly recommend.

Silverfish in Australian Households

Silverfish absorbs anything that contains polysaccharides, such as starches and dextrins in adhesives, which are found in book bindings. Aside from that, they feed on carpeting, clothing, coffee, dandruff, glue, hair, some paints, paper, photos, plaster, and sugar.

The female silverfish lay about 60 eggs and deposited in small crevices. Eventually, when the eggs hatch, the nymphs will work on its way to become adults after three months to three decades.
