Silverfish gets its name from its silvery, metallic appearance and fish-like shape and movements. They have no wings, but are able to run very fast. They tend to hide their presence from humans, which means any damage they have caused could go unnoticed as well.
Silverfish tend to feed on paper items, glue, clothing and food items, such as flour and rolled oats. Silverfish can live up to a year without food, but require high humidity environment. They move very fast and are typically nocturnal.
Silverfish are found throughout the U.S. and are typically seen in moist, humid areas in the home, such as bathrooms, basements, and attics.
