Silverfish consume small amounts of human foods and can cause contamination with their scales and droppings. They can also cause considerable damage to natural/synthetic fibres, books and other paper products while trying to feed on glues or other starchy substances.
Silverfish are small, soft, wingless insects often found in the home. They are nocturnal and move quickly. Occasionally, they are found in bathtubs as they cannot climb smooth surfaces. Their preferred diet is vegetable matter with a high carbohydrate and protein content. However, indoors they will feed on almost anything, including dried meat, flour, starch, paper, gum, glue, cotton, linen, rayon, silk, sugar and breakfast cereals.
