SILVERFISH

The Pest : Silverfish
Silverfish feed on starch in a way that results in damaged paper, fabrics, glues and other organic materials as well as silk and a few synthetic fabrics. They are often found in damp areas and are frequently seen foraging at night in kitchens and pantries. Silverfish also commonly graze in and around showers, baths, and sinks on the cellulose present in many shampoos, shaving foams and so on.

The Threat : Untreated silverfish infestation can cause contamination of food, posing a health hazard to humans.
