What are Silverfish?

Silverfish are pest that are generally found in dwelling in drawers or boxes in garages and sheds. Silverfish are known for their destructive feeding habits, oftentimes ruining papers, clothing and wallpaper. Silverfish feed on carbohydrates, especially sugars and starches. Cellulose, shampoos, glue in books, linen, silk and dead insects may be food sources. These white creepy creatures can dart off easily. They are mostly found in basements, attics, kitchens and baths. Furthermore, silverfish are especially attracted to paper and damp clothing.

Silverfish has been on earth millions of years ago before dinosaurs. Meaning, bugs like them have lived 400 million years! They are small wingless insects, with fish-like look and appear to be whitish-gray in color. They’re benign and there have been no known evidence that they cause diseases or inject poison but then they’re considered pests in homes and businesses.

These insects are cosmopolitan species And are observed in America, Australia, Africa, Eurasia and different parts of the Pacific. They like to nest in moist areas in which temperature is beneficial, incredibly humid among 75% and 95%. In urban areas particularly households, they are usually observed in attics, basements, bathtubs, sinks, kitchens, old books, and showers.

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 consumes anything that contains polysaccharides, like starches and dextrins in adhesives, which are found in book bindings. Aside from that, they feed on carpeting, clothing, java, dandruff, glue, hair, some paints, paper, photos, plaster, and sugar. Wallpapers are not an exception too as these creatures feed on it because of the glue. Overall, anything that has polysaccharide contents are considered food for these pests.

Silverfish are cosmopolitan species, meaning to say, they are common and are found in Africa, the Americas, Europe, Australia, Asia and other parts of the Pacific. They live in moist areas that require a relative humidity between 75% and 95%. In urban areas, they can be found in basements and attics.

As aforementioned, they may not impose any harm, however they’re considered a nuisance and can be destructive to any belongings.

Spotting an Infestation

Silverfish are classified as nocturnal pests and they move around so fast. Since they voraciously consume on starch-rich items and paste, most people can easily identify their existence because they leave stains on clothes and wardrobes.

As aforementioned, silverfish loves damp, dark and cold areas. They are found hiding in the nooks of the bathroom, kitchen cabinets, under the sink, attics and basements. Usually, whenever there are new buildings, large amounts may be found in which masonry is still damp. During a famine, a silverfish may even attack leatherware and synthetic fabrics. Silverfish can live for a year or more without eating.

Silverfish eggs generally take within 14 Days to 2 months to incubate. Indeed, the female and male carry out a fascinating custom that includes 3 phases and may last over half an hour. The female silverfish lay around 60 eggs and kept in small crevices. At the end, when the eggs hatch, the nymphs will cope on its way to move toward becoming adults after after three months to three years.

Though they’re accounted for household damages, silverfish holds no holds any document in transmitting diseases. On The alternative hand, they are food for different insects like earwigs, house centipedes, and spiders.
