Silverfish are tear-drop shaped insects with three long bristles at their rear and can vary from white-brown to bluish-silver in color. They thrive in dark, damp environments and are often found in laundry rooms, basements, bathtubs, sinks, and kitchens. They are especially attracted to paper, cardboard, linen, and damp clothing. They feed on carbohydrates, specifically sugar and starches. Silverfish are often found feeding on linen, silk, shampoos, glue, etc. and are known for being destructive eaters – causing property damage to items as they feed.
