Silverfish are small, silvery-scaled creatures with teardrop-shaped bodies. Their antennae are about the same length as their bodies. They have a wriggling motion that allows them to move quickly and to retreat into stone.
The female silverfish fertilizes her eggs by picking up reproductive droppings from the male. She can lay up to 100 eggs during her lifetime.
Although they do not harm humans, silverfish can contaminate food and glue. When their swarm grows, they can deal massive damage.
When a silverfish is hit, it calls out other silverfish in the area. As a result, the area becomes infested with silverfish.
This swarm can overwhelm any player. However, if the player can kill all the silverfish in the swarm in one attack, he or she can avoid the swarm and not trigger the nearby monster eggs.
In order to prevent silverfish from infesting your house, you must control the amount of moisture in your home. Leaves and grass clippings contain a lot of water. You can also try using dehumidifiers to decrease the amount of water. Also, you can use caulking to keep silverfish from laying their eggs.
If you notice a silverfish, do not go to it immediately. It is dangerous, especially in certain areas.
If the Y-coordinate changes, the silverfish can damage the player. It is also vulnerable to other monsters. To keep this from happening, wear armor.
If you find a block that is infested by a silverfish, the Y-coordinate and the axis of the block will change. Whenever this happens, you can attack it with a weapon that is enchanted with the “Attack Silverfish” ability.
