Silverfish usually are found in dark, damp areas of the home such as attics, basements, kitchens, bathrooms and garages. Silverfish can be destructive to cardboard, fabric, paper and are sometimes found in unopened food packages.
Silverfish feed on carbohydrates, particularly sugars and starches. This pest is commonly found in stored boxes in garages and sheds, and are known by experts as the most damaging bug to stored product.
Silverfish Health Risks
Silverfish do not transmit diseases, however, the pests may trigger allergies in some people and attract other pests into your home. While silverfish are only a mild health risk to you and your family, these pests can be very destructive to your home and your personal property. In large numbers, they can cause a lot of damage and ruin items such as files, books, wallpaper and clothes.
