They feed on some unusual items, such as wallpaper paste, book‐bindings, and other glue‐ or starch‐like materials. They will also feed on dried foods (just like the pantry pests mentioned previously). Sometimes, they don’t eat anything: a silverfish can survive without any food for months at a time. Silverfish are not harmful to humans, though, and they rarely cause significant damage to property, although they are sometimes a threat to antique books, historic wallpaper, carpet, tapestries, and other collectibles that are made of paper, glue, or other organic materials. If you need pest control in the Cleveland, Lorain, or Akron areas please give us a call!
In situations where those types of items (tapestries or carpets) are kept, it is best to consult a pest control professional. In most other cases, control is not necessary, and silverfish numbers can be reduced by sanitation and moisture‐control. However, if you need pest control in the Cleveland, Lorain, or Akron areas please give us a call!
