What are Silverfish?

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

Silverfish have been on the ground hundreds of thousands of years in the past 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 benign and there had been no recognised proof that they cause diseases or introduce toxin, however, they may be considered pests in houses and businesses.

Their existence is sometimes undetected and homeowners often 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 foundation cracks, torn screens, or openings around doors. Leaving dirty dishes out in the open will also lure silverfish indoors. They are not known to spread illnesses but they are capable of triggering allergic reactions in some 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 devours whatever comprises polysaccharides, for instance, starches and dextrins in adhesives, which can be used in publication ties. Besides that, they feed on a floor covering, apparel, espresso, dandruff, stay, hair, a few paints, paper, photographs, plaster, and sugar. Wallpapers are not an exception as well as these pests feed on it because of the paste. By and large, anything that has polysaccharide substance is seen as sustenance for these insects.

These local dreadful creatures regularly nestled in dim and safe places in the household. If not, they are likely undisturbed in publication racks, organizers, storage rooms and segregated spots.

As previously mentioned, they may not cause large damage, however, they are viewed as a hassle and can deem damage to any items.

Spotting an Infestation

Silverfish are proven to be nocturnal and they move around so fast. Since they feed on starches and glue, most people become mindful that if they see openings and yellowish stains on their attire or cupboards, they understand that silverfish is the culprit.

They are found hiding in dark and moist nooks of the toilet, kitchen cupboards, under the sink, attics and basements. Usually, when there are new buildings, large numbers may be found in which masonry is still moist. During a famine, a silverfish may even attack leatherware and synthetic fabrics. Silverfish can live for a year or more without eating.

It takes 2 weeks to 2 months for silverfish eggs to hatch. In fact, the adult male and female carryout an interesting mating ritual which involves 3 stages that last over half an hour. The feminine silverfish is effective at putting out 60 eggs and deposited in little crevices. When these eggs hatch, the nymphs will thrive to develop into adults between 3 months to 3 years.

Though they are responsible for household damages, silverfish holds no record in transmitting diseases. On the other hand, they are food for other insects such as earwigs, home centipedes, and spiders.
