Silverfish

Silverfish

Sometimes referred to as bristletails, silverfish are widely distributed in the United States and Canada. Other insects in the silverfish family are the firebrat, four-lined silverfish and the gray silverfish. Silverfish are primitive, wingless insects. The young are very much like the adults except for size. Adults are between ½” and ¾” (not including the tails). As they get older, distinguishing coloration develops. They range from silvery to gun-metal to almost black in colour. The bodies are teardrop shaped, tapering from head to rear. The eyes are small, compounded and wide-set. This species also has silver scales covering its body, giving it a silvery appearance.
