Silverfish are known as nuisance pests; they don’t sting humans, or bite them, but they can do quite a bit of damage to stuff. If they can find nothing else, they will consider your books, especially the bindings, a tasty meal, or perhaps your favorite leather coat. They are most often to be found in bathrooms, however, where they wallow in the moist, humid air, have a water source, and even find food sources among your toiletries.
It’s a little difficult to completely eliminate silverfish from the home, because they have so many ways of surviving. There are steps you can take to reduce their numbers though, and to discourage them as much as possible. Here are a few helpful tips to help discourage silverfish from making your home theirs.
