What Do Silverfish Turn Into?

A silverfish is a small, flat wingless insect. They have a slender body and shiny, fish-like scales covering their body segments. The insect has a pair of long antennae at the tip of its head.

Silverfish prefer to live in dark, moist places. Most commonly, they are found in bathrooms, kitchens, and attics.

If you have a silverfish infestation, you may notice the black flecks left behind by the insects. Silverfish can also leave behind holes in clothes. You should take steps to eliminate the silverfish.

Silverfish like to feed on starch and carbohydrates in household items. These can include paper products, fabrics, wallpaper, and even some cotton.

Silverfish are not poisonous, but they can damage your property. They will eat the fabric, paper, and cardboard, and can ruin old family photos and books.

Silverfish can be difficult to get rid of. You can use a chemical or natural product. However, it can take a few weeks for a product to work. In addition, you should be careful about where you put the product. Ensure that it does not contaminate water or food, and follow the instructions on the label.

Some people are allergic to silverfish. This is especially true if you have asthma, eczema, or another allergy.

Silverfish can survive for months without food. When they are not eating, they can move around quickly.

A single female silverfish can lay over 100 eggs in her lifetime. She deposits them singly or in small groups.
