Frequently Asked Questions
What are silverfish doing in my home?
Silverfish are small and nimble creatures that are attracted to damp environments, such as bathrooms, kitchens, garages, basements, and old boxes. However, high humidity is not the only factor for an infestation, as they can also live in dry areas at temperatures of 30°C or higher. Due to their incredible speed and secretive nature, a silverfish infestation may remain unnoticed for a long period of time, sometimes for months on end.
What do silverfish eat?
These insects rely on a healthy daily intake of carbohydrates, sugars and starches in particular. Shampoos, linen, silk or the glue used in books often fall prey to their eating habits. Other foods that silverfish are likely to target include cereals, flour, wallpapers, and even rotting leaves.
Do silverfish eat clothes?
Unfortunately, they do. Silverfish will often attack articles made of cotton, linen, silk, or leather. However, they will also eat any nourishment on the material’s surface, so starched clothing or a T-shirt covered with spills from sugary foods or beverages is just as likely to become their meal.
Are silverfish harmful?
The short answer is no. These creatures may have a menacing appearance, but their mandibles are far too small to penetrate human skin, and they wouldn’t do so even if they had the chance. Instead, they will use their speed to hide behind a safe shelter as soon as you approach them.
What about diseases?
Silverfish do not carry any known diseases and do not pose any danger to humans.
How to get rid of silverfish?
A natural way of keeping silverfish at bay involves the use of spices, such as bay leaves and sage – their smell is not exactly popular with the insects. Other home remedies that can deal with silverfish are diatomaceous earth, cucumber slices, and citrus essential oils (100% purity).
