Often called the "New Home Pest", Silverfish can be a real nuisance when found in your home. Silverfish are attracted to moisture and are most commonly found in bathrooms and kitchens. The silverfish's diet is mainly carbohydrates such as sugar or starches and usually arrives with many building materials.

Silverfish can live between three and four years, producing 100 eggs per 43 day gestation period. Silverfish feed on insulation, carbohydrates, starches and proteins. Silverfish are commonly found in improperly stored food, near moisture sources, linens and consume paper, or glues used in book bindings or wallpaper.
Silverfish are common during the winter months. They seek out warm areas and feed off of boxes, insulation and other material.
