Silverfish are tiny, teardrop-shaped insects. While they can live up to a year without feeding, these bugs require a high-humidity environment to survive. They are often discovered in a sink, bathtub or other damp area.

Are Silverfish Dangerous?

Silverfish are unsanitary, and can contaminate food. They are also known to damage paper goods such as wallpaper, books and magazines.

How Do I get Rid Of Silverfish?

A dehumidifier may help deter silverfish, creating a hostile environment. Traps, insecticides and even cinnamon can eliminate individual insects, but since silverfish reproduce quickly, a professional is recommended to deal with an infestation completely.
