Pest Facts from HomeTeam

Silverfish get their name from their silvery, metallic appearance and fish-like movements. Its elongated, oval-shaped, soft body is covered with fine scales. With six pairs of legs, it measures ¾ inch in size. They have three long tails and two long antennae, which they use to quickly maneuver through high-humid areas that they need to survive.

Silverfish feed on carbohydrates and protein, such as flour, dried meat, rolled oats, paper and even glue, which gives them the ability contaminate food and damage paper goods. To prevent and treat an infestation, repair leaky pipes or drains and eliminate any moldy or wet wood.
