What are Silverfish?

Have you ever wondered that when you open a book you found a tiny 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 destructive pests. Silverfish feed on carbohydrates, especially sugars and starches. They have voracious feeding habits, oftentimes ruining papers, clothes and wallpaper.

Silverfish has been on the planet millions of years ago before dinosaurs. Meaning, bugs like them have survived 400 million years! They are small wingless insects, with fish-like look and appear to be whitish-gray in color. They’re harmless 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 creepy crawlers are cosmopolitan species found in America, Australia, Africa, Eurasia and other parts of the Pacific. They love to nestle moist areas where temperature is favourable, relatively humid between 75% and 95%. In urban areas specifically families, they are generally found in attics, basements, bathtubs, sinks, kitchens, old books, and showers.

We have been getting the pest control done from Andrew and team for the last 5-6 years....very professional and prompt service. They have even provided free call back service with a smile, whenever requested....Great job guys.... Keep it up!!

Silverfish in Australian Households

Silverfish feed on anything that contains polysaccharides, such as starches and dextrins in adhesives, which are found in book bindings. They are also known to feed on carpeting, clothing, java, dandruff, glue, hair, some paints, paper, photographs, plaster, and sugar. Wallpapers are not an exception as well due to the glue. Overall, anything that has polysaccharide contents is considered food for these pests.

Silverfish are common pest species and are abundant in Africa, the Americas, Europe, Australia, Asia and other parts of the Pacific. They inhabit moist areas with relative humidity between 75 percent and 95%.

These national creepy crawlers are often found lurking in dark and sheltered areas in the home. If not, they are likely hiding between the nooks of the bookshelves, cupboards, closets and secluded places. They may not inflict any injury, and nothing has ever been recorded, however, they are regarded as a nuisance and can be harmful to any belongings.

Spotting an Infestation

These creepy crawlers are known to be nocturnal and they move around so quickly. Since they feed on starches and paste, most people become aware that should they see holes and yellow stains on their clothes or wardrobes, they understand that silverfish is the culprit.

As above, silverfish loves moist, dark and cold areas. So, it is better to inspect the bathroom, kitchen closets, under the sink, attics and basements. Usually, when there are new buildings, large numbers may be found where masonry is still damp.

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

On the other hand, they’re food for other insects such as earwigs, house centipedes, and spiders
