Silverfish are small, soft insects without wings. Silverfish are not often seen by homeowners because they are nocturnal and can run very swiftly. Occasionally, they are found in bathtubs. They crawl in seeking food or moisture and can't climb out.
These insects prefer vegetable matter with a
high carbohydrate and protein content. However, indoors they will feed on
almost anything. A partial list includes dried beef, flour, starch, paper, gum,
glue, cotton, linen, rayon, silk, sugar, molds and breakfast cereals. Silverfish
can go for up to one year without food.
