Silverfish can be destructive inside your home or business. No, these are not actual ‘fish’, but a small insect that has a silvery scale like appearance with a quick, wiggling movement that resembles a swimming fish. If you have a library of books in your house, photos, or important documents, you should be educated on silverfish and the effects that they can have once they take up residence in your home or business. Read on to learn more about these ruinous pests and how to keep them away from your Tennessee home or business.

While silverfish may be small, ½ to ¾ of inch in total size, they can do some real damage. They feed on starchy substances. They have been known to eat and destroy things such as:

  • Books and book bindings (enjoying the glue and paper)

  • Sugar

  • Paper

  • Photos

  • Dandruff

  • Silk

  • Linens

  • Human and pet hair

A humid and dark environment is their favorite place to be, so all those photos, books, and important papers that you have stored in boxes in the basement and attic are the perfect buffet for them. Inside the binding of a book it’s nice and dark, and they can stay right there and eat away at the glue and paper to their hearts (or stomachs) content. Libraries are also a great place for silverfish to reside. Not only in the books on the shelves, but also inside the books and documents in storage.
