Silverfish are small and shiny creatures usually grey in colour. They are nocturnal creatures and hard to detect for common people. They are about 10-12 mm in size and reside in damp and dark locations in the house like wall cavities, attics, plumbing, storerooms, linen piles etc. Their nests are close to where the food sources and storage are. They can destroy magazines, silk clothing, papers, food stored in cabinets along with the attached wallpapers in the house. They are also capable to live inside the packed food packets. Moreover they drive holes in the objects they chew on also making them yellow. Besides, their skin cells left in the house can cause allergies and asthma in the people residing in the space. They can survive up to a span of 8 years in your house easily. Further, they are preyed on by spiders and other insects while also spreading other diseases.
Since silverfish can thrive in climate of any type, it is hence easier for them to set up their nests and eventually huge colonies. Hence, it is naturally easier to take down ½ silverfish than when the colony is established. It becomes tougher to conduct an inspection and silverfish control service for handling the infestation.
