What are Silverfish?

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

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 colour. They’re harmless and there have been no known evidence that they cause diseases or inject poison but then they are considered pests in homes and businesses.

These unpleasant crawlers are globally recognized and are located in America, Australia, Africa, Eurasia and different portions of the Pacific. They settle in moist areas where the temperature is suitable for them, generally humid and about 75% and 95% in temperature. In Urban areas particularly households, they are usually found in storage rooms, basements, baths, sinks, kitchens, old books, and showers.

Ben is an absolute gentleman. Extremely polite and courteous and was very thorough in his work. He even took the time to explain different aspects of his job and the various insects and how he gets rid of them. Absolute champion. Hoping this will be the start of a long relationship with Andrew and his Local Pest Control team. Cheers.

Silverfish in Australian Households

Silverfish consumes anything that contains polysaccharides, like starches and dextrins in adhesives, which are found in book bindings. Apart from that, they feed on carpeting, clothing, java, dandruff, glue, hair, some paints, paper, photographs, plaster, and sugar. Wallpapers are not an exception as well as these creatures feed on it because of the glue. Overall, anything that’s 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 need a relative humidity between 75% and 95%. In urban areas, they can be found in basements and attics.

As previously mentioned, they may not cause large damage, however, they are viewed as an annoyance and can deem damage to any products.

Spotting an Infestation

Silverfish are classified as nocturnal pests and they go around so quickly. Since they voraciously consume on starch-rich items and paste, most people can easily identify their presence since they leave stains on clothes and wardrobes.

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

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

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