What are Silverfish?
Silverfish & Firebrats: (Order Thysanura) Their bodies are flattened, long and slender, broad at the front and tapering gradually toward the rear. The antennae are long and slender. Three long, slender appendages are found on the rear of the body. All silverfish and firebrats are wingless. They are most active at night and can run very swiftly. Silverfish may be found almost anywhere in the house. However they are usually found in areas with high moisture close to their source of food. Silverfish are unable to reproduce or even survive in buildings where winter heating and moisture loss results in low humidity. Silverfish eat a wide variety of foods containing proteins or carbohydrates including rolled oats, dried beef, flour, starch, paper, cotton, some synthetic fibers, sugar, dead insects and glue. In damp basements or attics, they can also feed on the surface molds that grow on cardboard boxes and other substrates. Silverfish can survive for long periods of time without food. Most firebrats, except for the common species live outdoors under rocks, bark, leaf litter, in the nests of birds and mammals, or in ant and termite nests. They prefer warmer temperatures and drier climates than silverfish and are numerous outdoors especially in the tropics. They do damage to synthetic materials such as books and other paper products. They may also leave yellow stains especially on linens. The silverfish (Lepisma saccharine) is found in all parts of the United States as well of much of the world. The adults body is about 1/2 in. long, with a uniform silvery color over the upper surface. This species prefer most conditions and temperatures of about 75 degrees. Eggs are laid in protected areas such as baseboards and hatch in about 30 days. The four-lined silverfish (Ctenolepisma quadriseriata) has a maximum body length to 5/8 in. and is marked with four dark lines extending the length of the body. They may live indoors or outdoors of a building and can either live in extremely dry or sightly moist conditions. It lives under rather unusual conditions, generally not areas frequented by silverfish. It prefers temperatures above 90 degrees and is frequently found around ovens or bakeries, boiler rooms or tunnels containing steam pipes. The bodies of adult firebrats are about 1/2 in. long and marked on back with numerous dark patches that give them a mottled gray appearance.
