The silverfish is a common pest in many Australian homes. It is scaly, has a silvery sheen, and it is about half an inch long at maturity. It is active at night and hides during the day. Individuals frequently attain an age of well over 3 years and under favourable conditions may lay an average of about 100 eggs. Silverfish are primary pests of paper and paper products, leather, furs, carpets, and starched fabrics.
