Season for silverfish

( Latin: Order Thysanura)

With their silvery scales and nimble, meandering movements, they can seem similar to glistening small fish. Silverfish have biting mouth parts and are insects. Characteristic are the three wires at the rear end. It’s been 300 million years since the first silver fish-like animal appeared. Some believe that all the various insect types we know today have evolved from silverfish-like insects. In hot climates the silver fish lives in nature, but in this country it is more common indoors than outdoors.
