Pest NameDescription 
SilverfishSilverfish Silverfish are wingless, fast-moving insects that are about 1/2 inch long. They have two long antennae on their head and three long bristles on their tail. Just like their name suggests, silverfish are silver-gray and prefer to live in cool damp areas. With their chewing mouthparts, silverfish feed on starchy materials such as glue, paste, fabric finish, book bindings, paper and fabric and can be found anywhere in the house.
