Silverfish are a small, wingless insect measuring normally 20mm or less in length. They have three tails or cerci and their body is covered in tiny silver scales.
They also can live inside homes in dark, humid, crevice-ridden enviroments – especially bathrooms (take away these elements and it will not be able to survive). They feed on fungi and plant materials. In homes they like to feed on starch rich substances such as paper, book bindings, wallpaper glue and sometimes photographs.
It’s name comes from it’s silvery blue colour along with it’s fish-like appearance and movements. Silverfish are commonly found outdoors under bark, rocks, leaf and plant compost, in soil and animal burrows.
A General Pest Control is the best form of treatment towards Silverfish.
