Silverfish are a common pest found throughout Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New England as a whole. A small insect, silverfish are often in between a half-inch and one inch in length, are silver in color, and have 3 bristles that protrude from their abdomen. They are narrow, lengthy, flat in shape and their movements are known to be fish-like.

What comes to mind when you think of the word silverfish? Maybe you have an image of a tranquil lake and flashes of silver just below the surface. Pretty silver fish. Oh, how peaceful that image can be. But don't get too comfortable because we aren't talking about those kinds of silver fish. We are talking about an insect called the silverfish. And there's nothing tranquil about them.
