The most common types of Silverfish are:
- Bristletail silverfish
- Common silverfish
- Four-lined silverfish
- Gray silverfish
- Firebrat silverfish
- Jumping bristletail silverfish
In houses, they are often found in bathrooms and kitchens, under carpets, on bookcases, behind picture frames and in cupboards where we store our clothes.
They feed on food leftovers and they prefer starch food. Their evolution allows them to consume cellulose which enables them to cause big damage in book collections and even damage valuable objects like art paintings.
