Pest Details: Silverfish

Silverfish and their close relatives, the firebrats, pose no known danger to humans, but they can do extensive damage to clothes made of natural fibers, books, wallpaper, and important records. Silverfish are wingless, slender insects with a color ranging from dark steel gray to almost black with a glistening metallic sheen. Small and unobtrusive, they work at night and are rarely seen unless they get into a sink or bathtub and cannot climb out again.

The adult silverfish, not including the tails is about 1/2 - 3/4 inch in length. The body is silvery and shaped similar to a carrot, tapering from head to rear. They have three long appendages projecting from their rear.
