Interesting Facts about Silverfish

Silverfish are insects with a teardrop-shaped and wingless body of 12-19 mm in length. They have a tail-like appearance. Their colours are brown-grey or bluish-silver.

Silverfish are usually found in attics, bathrooms, basements, kitchens and other areas of a house with high humidity.

They have destructive feeding habits. Silverfish can damage different types of household items, including

  • books
  • clothing
  • fabric
  • paintings
  • papers
  • photos
