White to brown-grey or bluish-silver in color, silverfish are teardrop-shaped insects that measure up to12-19 mm in length. Three long bristles on rear. Grow from egg to adult without visible change in appearance. Silverfish are about half an inch long and are silvery grey in colour. Firebrats are about half an inch long and are greyish and mottled with spots and bands of dark scales.
Biology of Silverfish:
Capable of thriving in most climates, silverfish prefer to dwell in dark, damp areas such as basements, attics, kitchens and bathrooms. They are especially attracted to paper and damp clothing. Commonly found in stored boxes in garages and sheds.
Silverfish feed on carbohydrates, particularly sugars and starches. Cellulose, shampoos, glue in books, linen, silk and dead insects may be food sources. Have been found in unopened food packages.
Distribution of Silverfish:
Outdoors they can be found under rocks, bark and leaf mould and in ant, bird or animal nests.
They usually come into the home in food, furniture, old books or papers. They are hardy and can live without food for many months. They are harmless but can be a nuisance..
People and companies think they can treat the pest problem themselves, only to find that they make the infestation worse by purchasing products from DIY outlets with a poor percentage of insecticide. This may prove to be an expensive waste of time and money.
