What are Silverfish?

Have you ever pulled a book off the shelf or even opened an old wooden box only to scream when these white creepy creatures dart off? Well, we’re talking about silverfish.

Silverfish have been on the earth thousands and thousands of years in the past before dinosaurs. Meaning, insects like them have lived for 400 million years! They are small wingless bugs, with the fish-like look and are whitish-grey in colour. They are harmless and there’d been no acknowledged proof that they cause diseases or introduce toxin, however, they are considered pests in homes and businesses.

Their existence is sometimes undetected and homeowners frequently transport silverfish indoors unknowingly. Once inside, they find a secure dark and damp place where they can nestle and breed, and over time spread anywhere. These pests will enter houses through base cracks, torn screens, or gaps around doors. Leaving dirty dishes out in the open will also lure silverfish indoors. They are not known to spread illnesses but they are capable of triggering allergic reactions in some people and further damage possessions. Their presence sometimes attracts carpet beetles and causes unease due to their strange appearance.

Silverfish in Australian Households

Silverfish absorbs anything that contains polysaccharides, such as starches and dextrins in adhesives, which are found in book bindings. Aside from that, they feed on carpet, clothing, java, dandruff, glue, hair, some paints, paper, photographs, plaster, and sugar. Wallpapers are not an exception too because these creatures feed on it because of the glue. Overall, anything that’s polysaccharide contents are considered food for these pests.

Silverfish are common insect species and are abundant in Africa, the Americas, Europe, Australia, Asia and other parts of the Pacific. They inhabit moist areas with relative humidity between 75% and 95%.

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

Spotting an Infestation

Silverfish are nocturnal pests and they move around so quickly. Their main diet involves starch-rich matter and those that contain paste. Most people can easily identify their existence since they leave stains on clothes and wardrobes.

As aforementioned, silverfish loves damp, dark and cold locations. So, it is better to inspect the bathroom, kitchen cupboards, under the sink, attics and basements. Usually, when there are new buildings, large numbers could be found where masonry is still damp.

It takes 2 weeks to two months for silverfish eggs to hatch. In fact, the adult male and female carryout an interesting mating ritual which involves 3 phases that last over half an hour. The female silverfish is effective at putting out 60 eggs and deposited in little crevices. When these eggs hatch, the nymphs will thrive to develop into adults between 3 weeks to 3 decades.

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

Controlling Silverfish Brooding

Though you may somehow reduce their brooding when you clean the household, it cannot guarantee that silverfish infestation will be entirely eradicated. It will still be a wise choice if professional pest management services will be taken for silverfish treatment.

Here are a few reasons why having an expert silverfish therapy is the very best initiative:
