What are Silverfish?

There are around 20 species of silverfish. They’re small, wingless insects about and grow to be around 1 centimeter long. They have long, slender, flattened bodies. Their name comes from the silvery, metallic appearance.

Here are some key facts about silverfish:


They have a distinctive silver or pearl-like color, which helps give them their name. They are covered with fine scales.


Silverfish feed on paper, photos, wallpaper, glue, starch in book bindings, and even some fabrics. They can also eat dead insects.

Common Silverfish Species

The most common species found in Brisbane homes and buildings include:

Lepisma saccharina

This is the most widespread species in Australia. They have a tapered, fish-like shape and can be identified by their silver-gray scales and long antennae. They feed on starchy foods and paper products.

Thermobia Domestica

Slightly smaller than common silverfish, firebrats have mottled gray coloring and prefer warmer environments. They are drawn to heat sources and will chew on fabrics, wallpaper, and books.

Ctenolepisma longicaudata

Also known as the long-tailed silverfish, this species has distinctive long cerci (tail-like appendages). It feeds on detritus and plants.
