Pest Profile: Silverfish

Image Silverfish are a nocturnal pest. That means that they are active mostly at nighttime. They prefer dark places such as basements and crawlspaces. Silverfish feed on both sugars and starches. Often this includes things that contain cellulose (including food packaging), glue in books, linens and fabrics.

The most common way to uncover a silverfish infestation is through seeing the bug. Often it is found tapped in a bath tub.  Silverfish are grey in colour. Generally they measure between 12-19mm. They have many sets of legs.
