  • They have a distinctive, fish-like appearance with a silvery-blue color and a tapered, elongated body.
  • Silverfish move in a quick, wriggling motion, resembling the movement of a fish.
  • They are nocturnal and often found in dark, damp areas like bathrooms, basements, and attics.
  • Signs of silverfish include small holes in wallpaper, yellowish stains on fabric, and shed skins.

Silverfish Habits
