Silverfish are a relatively small and nascent mob in Minecraft. They are not as threatening as some of their bigger counterparts, but can still be a nuisance. You can find silverfish in several different places.
The first thing to know about them is that they have a spawner. This is a simple grid block which can be created in creative mode. It will spawn up to four silverfish.
When a silverfish is killed, it drops five experience points. However, this isn’t the only reason to kill one.
When a silverfish is attacked, it will call other silverfish in the area to attack. And they can even see through walls.
There are many ways to spawn these mobs. Aside from their spawner, they can also spawn from a broken monster egg in the basement of an igloos. But they won’t spawn from slabs or mossy cobblestone.
The spawner can be deactivated. Deactivating the spawner requires 13 JackOLanterns and some dirt.
Another thing to consider is that a silverfish’s spawning time isn’t affected by biome or light level. In fact, it’s a spawning time that can be slowed down by torches.
One of the most important things to remember when fighting these little creatures is that they do not carry a weapon. They do, however, spawn special blocks. These blocks will deal damage and can help you when it comes to killing them.
Some people say that finding a silverfish signifies you’re near a Stronghold. While this is true, it doesn’t really mean much.
