Silver Fish is a small wingless insect which belongs to Animalia Kingdom. Commonly known as Paramites.

Silverfish are known for their destructive feeding habits. When they find a food supply, they try to make their nest as close to it as possible, oftentimes ruining papers, clothing and wallpaper. Silverfish can survive in almost any environment.

They hide during the day and forage at night, Silverfish love dark, damp areas and will nest in closets, attics, kitchens, laundry rooms and basements. They prefer areas with high moisture and thrive in temperatures above 75 degrees. You can also find them in crawl spaces, vents, baseboards and many spots that are difficult to reach.

Silverfish also have the potential to drag other unwanted pests into your home, such as centipedes, earwigs and spiders that love to prey on these bugs. Once they find a free meal, they may want to stick around your home to see if there is any nearby dessert. Silverfish infestations require professional treatment.
