Silverfish are small primitive insects that feed on glue, paper, and cereal products. Books are particularly susceptible to their attack. Infestations often begin when contaminated items such as cardboard are brought into the house. Silverfish can also enter through small cracks under wooden shingles.

Silverfish are resourceful. When the food sources mentioned above are not found, they will eat shoe or other leather. In fact, silverfish control their appetite. They can survive for up to a year without eating!
