Silverfish are small arthropods that are wingless. These creatures can be found throughout the world of Minecraft. They can infest several types of blocks. If you have a silverfish infestation, it can grow into a huge swarm.
Silverfish are weak, so they can be killed easily. However, they can be very annoying. When they are attacked, they spawn and attack the player. As they swarm, they will deal a lot of damage.
You can avoid fighting silverfish by using TNT and other blocks. This will make them die quickly. Another way is to build above the spawner. Then you will have a better chance of destroying the spawner.
There are two types of silverfish – the normal silverfish and the infested. The infested are more aggressive. They will eat through the materials they infest.
The normal silverfish will not spawn inside regular stone brick blocks. In order to kill them, you can use explosives or fire. It is best to use melee weapons.
There are also some variants of the silverfish. These can spawn inside broken infested blocks. These blocks can appear in mountain biomes, strongholds, and igloos with basements.
Silverfish have a special mossy stone block that they hide in. This block will take longer to break.
Silverfish are known to feed on non-synthetic cloths. However, they do not eat through all materials.
If you want to avoid fighting the silverfish, you can put a Silk Touch enchantment on the block. This enchantment will prevent the silverfish from spawning if the block breaks.
