What are Silverfish?

Silverfish are wingless insects that get their name from their silver, fish-like appearance. The two most common silverfish species in Sydney homes are:

  • Common Silverfish: This species grows up to 12mm long and has a tapered, fish-shaped body. They are greyish-blue in color with two long antennae and three tail-like appendages. Common silverfish feed on starchy materials and prefer warm, humid environments.
  • Firebrat Silverfish: Slightly smaller than common silverfish, firebrats measure up to 10mm in length. They have mottled dark gray and white markings on their body and prefer warm, dry places like attics and around appliances. Firebrats feed on charred or scorched materials.

The Risks of Silverfish

Silverfish chew on household items made of paper, cloth, photos and more as they look for starchy food sources. This can ruin valuables like old photos, documents, books and keepsakes that can’t be replaced.

They also leave small dark droppings everywhere they go. For some people, these droppings can cause stuffy noses, watery eyes, coughing and difficulty breathing if they have allergies or asthma.

These insects also lay hundreds of eggs quickly. This leads to a rapid increase in population. Before you know it, silverfish could spread to take over more places in your home.

The best way to avoid these risks is getting professional silverfish control at the first sign of the bugs. Stop them before they can damage more things or trigger allergies.

Signs of Infestation

  • Seeing live silverfish bugs crawling around
  • Droppings that look like pepper specks

How to Control and Prevent Silverfish
