Silverfish are non-flying insects that can cause damage to fibrous parts of your home, these insects are known for being relatively gross-looking, and infestations of silverfish can be problematic for homeowners.

What are their habits?

Silverfish slither along walls and are nocturnal, so it’s normal to see the damage to pages in books or other types of paper or wooden/fibrous areas of your home long after silverfish have departed. Generally, they’re found in humid areas such as basements, sinks, showers, and other areas where water is abundant.

What is their life cycle?

Female silverfish lay up to 60 eggs at a time, and they can live up to 3 years. Silverfish reproduce at a slower rate than other insects, keeping with their pattern of taking their time when they infest an area.

What damages and diseases do they bring to the household?

Silverfish are generally one of the lesser threats to humans, however they can damage property pretty severely. If you have a lot of paper products, such as books, the pages get consumed by these insects.
