Pest Description

Silverfish are found throughout the BC and are typically seen in moist, humid areas in the home, such as bathrooms, basements, and attics. They tend to hide their presence from humans, which means any damage they have caused could go unnoticed as well. Read on to find out more about silverfish control and how to get rid of silverfish.

The silverfish female lays about one to three eggs per day, placing them in cracks and crevices. Developmental time is three to four months under favorable conditions of 22-30 degrees c and at least 50-75 percent relative humidity. Otherwise, it may require up to two to three years. The majority of silverfish live up to three years.

Silverfish usually feed on paper items, glue, clothing, and food items, such as flour and rolled oats. They prefer proteins to carbohydrates and are cannibalistic — their favorite protein meals include dried beef and dead or injured of their kind.
