What are Silverfish?

Have you ever pulled a book off the shelf or could be opened an old wooden container only to get surprised while those white creepy creatures dart off? Well, we are talking about silverfish.

Silverfish has been on the planet millions of years ago before dinosaurs. Meaning, bugs like them have lived 400 million years! They are small wingless insects, with fish-like look and appear to be whitish-gray in color. They’re harmless and there have been no known evidence that they cause diseases or inject poison but then they are considered pests in homes and businesses.

Silverfish don’t transmit diseases, but the pests can trigger allergies in some people and additional damage properties. Their presence occasionally attracts carpet beetles and causes unease due to their strange appearance.

Silverfish in Australian Households

Silverfish feed on anything that contains polysaccharides, like starches and dextrins in adhesives, which are found in book bindings. They are also known to feed on carpeting, clothing, java, dandruff, glue, hair, some paints, paper, photographs, plaster, and sugar. Wallpapers aren’t an exception as well because of the glue. Overall, anything that has polysaccharide contents is known as food for these pests.

Silverfish are cosmopolitan species, meaning to say, they are common and are found in Africa, the Americas, Europe, Australia, Asia and other parts of the Pacific. They live in moist areas that require a relative humidity between 75% and 95%. In urban areas, they can be located in basements and attics.

They nestle in dark and sheltered areas in the household. If not, they’re probably undiscovered in bookshelves, cupboards, closets and gated areas. They may not impose any harm but they are considered a nuisance and may be destructive to any belongings.

Spotting an Infestation

These creepy crawlers are known to be nocturnal and they move around quickly. Since they feed on starches and paste, most individuals will be aware of their existence when they see holes and yellowish stains on their clothes or wardrobes. They understand that silverfish is present.

As aforementioned, silverfish loves moist, dark and cold locations. They are found hiding in the nooks of the bathroom, kitchen cabinets, under the sink, attics and basements. Usually, whenever there are new buildings, large numbers may be found in which masonry is still damp. During a famine, a silverfish may even attack leatherware and synthetic fabrics. Silverfish can live for a year or more without eating.

Silverfish eggs usually take within two weeks to 2 months to hatch. Actually, the male and female carryout an interesting ritual which involves 3 phases and may last over half an hour. The female silverfish lay about 60 eggs and deposited in little crevices. Finally, when the eggs hatch, the nymphs will work on its way to become adults after three months to three decades.

Though they are responsible for household damages, silverfish holds no record to be transmitting diseases. On the other hand, they are food for other insects like earwigs, house centipedes, and spiders.

Controlling Silverfish Brooding

Cleaning the house and surrounding regions do not completely eradicate silverfish. These pests are quite difficult to eliminate that it requires assistance from pest control professionals. This is because no generic insecticides or pesticides can poison the silverfish brooding.

Here are some reasons why having a professional silverfish treatment is a fantastic initiative:

That being said, they could trigger an allergic response in some people. Professionals have their own gear. Silverfish can be difficult to completely control this is especially true in homes which have wooden shingles on the roof. Furthermore, a trained professional will be better because they will be able to help you identify and treat the areas where silverfish is residing. If you suspect a silverfish infestation in the comfort of your home, it’s best to call the support of a licensed pest control professional.
