Have you seen any silverfish lurking around or any traces they have left behind around your property? Silverfish are small silvery insects that can cause a high level of damage if they are not stopped on time. They are both a nuisance and a health hazard.
Silverfish and firebrats eat a wide variety of foods, including glue, wallpaper paste, book bindings, paper, photographs, starch in clothing, cotton, linen, rayon fabrics, wheat flour, cereals, dried meats, leather and even dead insects. Silverfish often live in damp, cool places such as basements and laundry rooms. Sometimes, they are found in a bathtub, sink or washbasin, unable to climb out.
