Silverfish are a wingless insect usually found in moist environments. They can be up to one inch long and are usually brown or silver. They are notable for their unique appearance and quick speed.
A female silverfish can live as long as 8 years. They lay as many as 50 eggs at a time, but can only lay up to 100 throughout their lifetime. The time it takes for the eggs to hatch can vary anywhere from two weeks to two months. Silverfish usually have a small population size because their mating process takes a long time to complete.
Silverfish thrive in moist environments and in dark locations like underneath rocks. If they make their way indoors, they can usually be found under the sink. While they don’t cause property damage, they can become an annoyance due to their longevity.
