Silver Fish

Silverfish are nocturnal insects that are commonly found in attics, basements, bathrooms, wall voids, subfloor areas and cracks or crevices.  They  prefer cool and damp locations, such as around sinks, floor drains and sump pump areas.

Silverfish are most active at night and move very quickly with a wiggling motion that resembles the swimming action of a fish.  They are scavengers and will feed on crumbs, dead insects and paper products.

Silverfish are hardy pests and can live without food for many months.

In large numbers, silverfish can do significant damage to your home and your belongings.
