Silverfish, also known as fishmoth or carpet shark, is a small wingless insect with a long, slender body and a hard exoskeleton. It is about ½ inch long and has two large antennae. It gets its name from its fish-like movements and silver scales on its body. It is classified under Lepismatidae family and Thynasura order. Its scientific name is Lepisma saccharina. It is a common household bug that thrives in a damp environment. Household products or food items that contain polysaccharides are potential food sources for this insect. It can cause a great deal of damage to your wallpaper, books and clothes. If you spot these insects in your home, you must immediately consider the methods of silverfish elimination. Since silverfish thrive in damp areas, the first thing you need to do is to make sure that your home is well-ventilated. Look for signs of water leakage and get it repaired to ensure that your home is dry.
