What does a Silverfish look like?

Silverfish are tiny insects, only about ½ to ¾ inch long, with fish-like scales. They have a flat, oval-shaped body, two antennae, and three tail projections. People call them “bristletails” due to their three long tail-like appendages. Silverfish are wingless and appear like fish with their rapid side-to-side movement.

Where do Silverfish live?

Silverfish normally live outdoors under rocks, bark, and leaf mold. They need moisture and high humidity to survive.

In drier climates, they will invade your home as a means of survival searching for a moist living space. They like to hide in dark, damp places such as attics and basements. And are often spotted around bathtubs and sinks.

You’ll also find them in your kitchen seeking out flour, cereals, and other grains.
