Silverfish are common house pests in the Queen Creek area. They are small and can get into almost any structure, but infestations can be difficult to identify. They are nocturnal by nature and tend to avoid contact with humans.

How To Identify Silverfish In Your Home

Silverfish are interesting house pests. Here are some silverfish facts: They are small, no more than about one-half to three-quarters of an inch long. They have two prominent antennae on their heads and armored, fish-shaped bodies that taper from head to tail. They have three bristles on their tails that look like antennae. Their scales are dark gray-black, with a notable sheen. Silverfish have many legs and can move fast for their size. They prefer to hide in dark, moist areas that are quiet. They feed on paper and some types of furniture and clothing. If disturbed, silverfish immediately seek to escape and hide somewhere else.

Are Silverfish Harmful?

Silverfish are thankfully not venomous, nor do they sting or bite. Unfortunately, silverfish infestations can indeed be destructive. Silverfish like to feed on things like paper, some types of food stores, and even certain fabric types. The longer the infestation continues the worse the damage can get. In short, silverfish can cause a lot of damage to your home, in a lot of little ways.

  • Inspect any purchases before bringing them into your home. Silverfish can hitch rides.
  • Clean up outside garbage. Silverfish are flexible in their diet. Garbage appeals to them.
