Many living organisms are considered pests by humans as they cause great deal of discomfort. One such pest is silverfish and it is nocturnal in nature and known to move very swiftly. In addition, they reproduce quickly and their infestation can remain unnoticed for longer periods by the homeowners as they are secretive in nature. The main reason behind considering them as pests is that they have destructive feeding habits and so they can ruin wallpapers, papers and even clothing. They generally live near linen, paper sources and in dark and damp areas. Generally, their infestation can be found in basements, attics, bathrooms, laundry rooms and in kitchens.
