The silverfish is a nocturnal insect typically 0.5–1.0 in long. Its abdomen tapers at the end, giving it a fish-like appearance.
Like other species in Apterygota, the silverfish is completely wingless. Silverfish have long antennae, and move in a wiggling motion that resembles the motion of a fish
Silverfish can regenerate terminal filaments and antennae if lost, in two to four weeks.
Silverfish typically live for up to three years.
The female lays groups of fewer than 60 eggs at once, deposited in small crevices. The eggs are oval-shaped, whitish, about 0.031 in long and take between two weeks and two months to hatch. A silverfish usually lays fewer than 100 eggs in her lifetime.
They consume matter that contains polysaccharides, such as starches in adhesives. These include book bindings, carpet, clothing, coffee, dandruff, glue, hair, some paints, paper, photos, plaster, and sugar. They will damage wallpaper in order to consume the paste and can also cause damage to tapestries. Other substances they may eat include cotton, dead insects, linen, silk, leftover crumbs, or even their own exuviae (moulted exoskeleton).
