What Are Silverfish?

Silverfish have a silvery, metallic appearance and move with fish-like movements. They have three long tail-like appendages. Silverfish are most often found in humid, moist areas of the home like bathrooms and attics. They cause damage that often goes unnoted due to their excellent hiding methods. While they are not harmful, they can be a nuisance.

Signs of a Silverfish Infestation

Silverfish reproduce quickly and move fast, so it’s often challenging to find signs of an infestation. The most common signs of a silverfish infestation include the following:

  • Skin Molts – Silverfish shed their skin, so you may notice small, transparent outer shells.
  • Damaged Property – Silverfish like to eat clothing, cardboard, and wallpaper, so watch for feeding marks and holes.
  • Droppings – Silverfish have unique droppings that resemble black peppercorns and are often mistaken for dust.

Silverfish Prevention

You can help our pest team manage and prevent silverfish. The best methods to prevent silverfish include:

  • Open vents in humid areas
  • Use baseboards with caulking
  • Clean up food particles
  • Remove items with adhesive from your home
  • Use a dehumidifier in your home

Are Silverfish Harmful?

Silverfish will not bite you or spread disease. They will often harm your personal belongings, and love to eat anything made of paper. They typically infest books, wallpaper, and cardboard. While they will not bite you, they will bite your paper items, clothing, glue, and food products.
