How to Get Rid of Silverfish in Minecraft

Silverfish in Minecraft are small, wingless mobs. These bugs can spawn in strongholds and igloos. However, they cannot infest slabs, stone bricks, or mossy cobblestone.

Silverfish are a relatively harmless mob. But if they’re in large numbers, they can be a nuisance. They eat dust, paper, and other debris. Their byproducts can mix with existing allergens and make current allergic reactions worse.

While silverfish can damage your possessions, they aren’t dangerous to you. If you have an allergy, it’s a good idea to exterminate them. You can do it yourself, or hire a professional.

When you first notice a silverfish infestation, it’s important to identify the cause of the problem. You can look for a moist, dark, and secluded area. For example, you could check your attic for water damage. Also, your basement is likely to have more moisture and could have cracks or other areas that can be an entry point for silverfish.

To kill the silverfish, you can break up the blocks they hide in. You can use TNT or Creepers. Or you can spray some essential oils. Many all-natural compounds repel silverfish, but they’re not toxic to humans.

You can also try enchantments that deal additional damage to silverfish. The Bane of Arthropods enchantment will make silverfish take more damage from tools.

If you want to get rid of a silverfish infestation, you may need to clean your home thoroughly. Don’t forget to remove old wallpaper, old books, and other materials that you haven’t used in years.
