A Silverfish is a small grey mouse-like Mob in Minecraft. They are usually found inside stone blocks. They only eat wood and do not attack humans. However, they can be a nuisance in large numbers.
These Mobs do not spawn in creative mode. If you want to keep the Silverfish from spawning, you can enchant a weapon or a stone block. To do this, you must first destroy the Silverfish block. This will instantly kill the Silverfish.
In the Strongholds, silverfish spawners will naturally appear in end portal rooms. Broken infested stone bricks can also appear in these areas.
Generally, a single female can lay up to 100 eggs over her lifetime. The eggs will hatch in about three to six weeks.
Silverfish do not have any special properties that make them harmful to humans. They are only infested in a certain light level. For example, they cannot spawn in a light level of 12 or lower. Also, they do not infest stairs variants.
Silverfish will only attack a player if a player has destroyed their block or if the Y-axis shifts. Additionally, if a player’s spawner is not enabled, they will not spawn in the vicinity of another player.
If a Silverfish is attacked, it will call out to other Silverfish. Depending on the level, the other Silverfish will then become active. Afterwards, they will re-spawn in the same location.
Occasionally, an infestation of Silverfish will spread to other locations. However, it is unlikely that a Silverfish will cause a major amount of damage to a home.
