WHAT DO SILVERFISH LOOK LIKE?
Silverfish are silver insects with antennas. They have a larger head and as you move down the rest of their bodies they get smaller.
In the dark is where silvefish primarily lie, and particularly where it is humid. They eat starchy foods and mold for survival, so if there is something of the sorts nearby, that is prime ground for discovering silverfish nearby. Other food options for them include cereals, flours, book bindings, glue, wallpaper, and papers. Silverfish are notorious nuisance pests due to the damages that thy can cause for a home.
Silverfish will also lay eggs anywhere and everywhere in a home and once the eggs are laid, that’s when the real major infestations start. They can lay a number of eggs at a time, which could take about a month to hatch, and a couple months until it becomes a reproductive insect. So even if you think you may have killed all of the silver fish insects, just wait until those eggs reach their adult bodies and become reproducing insects themselves.
A good indicator of silverfish is evident if you see any molts lying around. They will continue to grow throughout their lives, and like many other types of invertebrate insects, will leave a layer of skin behind them as they grow.
Other signs of silverfish insects inside your home comes from the damages that they create when they begin eating your wallpaper, tablecloths, books, and other materials that they often will eat.
