Capable of thriving in most climates, silverfish prefer to dwell in dark, damp areas such as kitchens and bathrooms that provide them with food and shelter.
They are especially attracted to paper and damp clothing and are commonly found in stored boxes in garages and sheds. Silverfish feed on carbohydrates, particularly sugars and starches, but they may also feed on cellulose, shampoos, glue in books, linen, silk and dead insects.
Silverfish have been known to cause extensive damage by ruining photos, books, wallpaper and anything made of cotton.
