Fish Out of Water

Silverfish are clearly not fish. Their nickname comes from their silver colour and the way that their bodies move side to side, like a fish. Read on to discover how to get rid of silverfish once and for all.

Like many other household pests, they thrive in moist, humid environments. Believe it or not, they can live up to 8 years and reproduce frequently. This is why they can be a huge nuisance and over time they can cause damage to your household items.

Outside, silverfish live in damp, dark areas; in mulch, under landscaping ties, in and around fallen trees, inside wood piles, and under rocks. When living inside, silverfish live in areas of high humidity. They can be found in basements, laundry rooms, crawl spaces, under sinks, and in other areas with high moisture levels.

Silverfish pose no threats to people or pets, but that doesn’t mean you should welcome them into your home. When they get inside, silverfish will infest and contaminate pantry items including cereal, dry pasta, flour and pet food. In addition, they also have the potential to damage personal items such as books, photos, upholstered furniture to name a few.
