What are silverfish and how do you get rid of them?

We are often asked what are silverfish and how do you get rid of them? Silverfish are cigar-shaped, silvery grey wingless insect around 1 cm long. They are found in damp areas commonly in kitchens and bathrooms. They are nocturnal in their habits, they often become trapped in baths, basins. This is because they cannot climb smooth surfaces. Silverfish move quickly and have three long bristles at their tail end.
