Information about Silverfish

silverfish lepisma saccharina information about

Silverfish, also known as fishmoths, are small, wingless insects that belong to the order Thysanura. The scientific name, Lepisma saccharina, refers to the silverfish’s tendency to eat foods that are high in carbohydrates and protein. When dealing with them, attention must be paid to ensure that silverfish are not confused with venomous centipedes or cockroaches.

silverfish lepisma saccharina information about

Description and distribution

As the name so clearly suggests, silverfish will have a light, blueish-grey colouring, as well as shapes and movements that are reminiscent of fish. Unlike other species of the order Thysanura, which are eyeless, silverfish have 2 small compound eyes. They have long antennae, which they move in a wiggling motion, much as fish do. Silverfish also have flat, long abdomens, which reduce in thickness towards the end, tapering in a terminal filament; “carrot” is a good word to describe the shape of a silverfish. This filament projects off the end of the abdomen, lying between 2 long cerci. These 5 appendages, the 2 antennae, the 2 cerci, and the terminal filament, are approximately as long as the body itself. Silverfish do not have wings, but they do have 3 pairs of legs, which are so thin that, as they rapidly move across the ground, they are nearly invisible, sustaining the illusion of a tiny fish swimming on land. Silverfish typically measure around 13-25mm.
Silverfish are nocturnal, so they avoid light, hiding during the day and only coming out to forage at night. They prefer warm and moist places, with temperatures between 20-25 degrees Celsius and humidity of around 75%-95%. As such, they generally live in darkened, damp locations, such as bathrooms or garages, or boiler, furnace, or laundry rooms; more specifically, you are likely to find them under sinks or bathtubs, in closets, bookcases, or storage areas, in steam tunnels, insulation around hot water or heating pipes, etc. More often than not, they will nest as close as possible to a source of food. They are also a cosmopolitan species, found in Africa, the Americas, Australia, Eurasia, and other parts of the Pacific.

Breeding and dietary information

Before the actual reproduction process, silverfish carry out a ritual involving 3 phases, which may last more than 30 minutes. Following this, the male will lay a sperm capsule (also known as a spermatophore) on the ground, which the female then picks up with her ovipositor, inserts into her body, and fertilizes. Up to 60 eggs (at once) are then deposited in small crevices or narrow spaces. (A single individual can lay up to 100 eggs in a lifetime, although the number is generally lower than that.) These are white, oval-shaped, and around 0,8mm long. Between 2 weeks and 2 months may pass before the eggs hatch, the time depending mostly on environmental conditions. The newly hatched individuals are white, the grey hue and metallic shine developing over time, as they grow older. Otherwise, they have the appearance of small adults. Development to adulthood can last anywhere between 3 months to 3 years, spanning as few as 17 and as many as 66 moults. Unlike most insects, silverfish continue to moult into adulthood, as well. Silverfish can live between 2-8 years.

Predators of silverfish include spiders, centipedes, earwigs, etc. Other than running, there is little silverfish they can do to protect themselves against these predators. In spite of their small size, though, silverfish are very agile runners. They run with characteristic movements, stopping at short intervals, before moving on very rapidly. However, this is only possible on horizontal surfaces, silverfish not being able to climb walls at the same speed due to a lack of additional appendages.

A silverfish’s diet consists of matters that contain carbohydrates and polysaccharides, such as book bindings, carpets, clothing, coffee, cotton, dandruff, dead skin cells, glue, linen, paint, paper (also wallpaper), photos, plaster, silk, sugar, as well as different types of tapestries. Silverfish also eat mould, dandruff, body coverings from other silverfish moults, as well as more high-protein foods, such as meat of dead insects. During famine, silverfish may also eat leather and synthetic fabrics. If they have water, silverfish can live without food for up to 1 year.

Silverfish as pests

As suggested by the food they consume, silverfish are considered to be household pests, seeing as they often destroy property and contaminate food. They are creepy-looking and, being very fast, extremely difficult to capture; not only that, but they reproduce very quickly, and, as a result, silverfish populations can very swiftly grow out of control. However, they are primarily nuisances; the damage they cause is actually very little, and, if you have a silverfish infestation, that is generally a sign that you already have more serious problems as far as humidity and insulation are concerned. When it comes to human health, silverfish are harmless; they are not known to bite humans and they do not transmit any diseases.

The main preventative measures you can take to avoid such an infestation is controlling the level of humidity in your home, eliminating their possible food sources, keeping a clean environment at all time, and in order to eliminate potential invaders from the start, you can use natural or chemical repellents. Vacuum your house often as this helps to keep their food sources down and sucks eggs out of the carpet and baseboards.

Spraying concentrated insecticides for Silverfish control:

If you are already dealing with an infestation, you can use both natural and chemical substances to eliminate them.  However, do not be hasty in eliminating them from your garden, as it can benefit from their presence. They have a valuable role in regrowth and decomposition, so they can help the quality of your soil. If you do want to eliminate them, check our article about ‘How to get rid of Silverfish’.

Got a question?

    1. Yes they can. As silverfish live for several years, they moult on a regular basis, every one to three months. Due to this, they can also regrow lost appendages, such as a leg or antenna, during their following moult.
