Silverfish control

Silverfish are members of a primitive order of insects which moult as adults.

They are nocturnal in habit and tend to hide during the day.

The adult, when mature, is around 12 mm in length and generally grey or silver/grey in colour.

Humidity is important in the development of of the silverfish with 90% relative humidity being the optimum for development of the nymphal stages. In common with other insects, development times are influenced by temperature, relative humidity, moisture content, quantity and quality of food.
