Skunks are one of the foulest smelling rodents that humans come into contact with. Although rats and mice are more commonly known to enter your home, a skunk has every reason to try and gain entry and search for food and shelter as well.

This time of year is perfect for enjoying the company of family, friends and other loved ones. Gifts are exchanged, festive feasts are consumed and the company is jovial. Inviting special guests into your home is a great way to have fun this holiday season and celebrate the many blessings in your life. There are some guests that are not invited into your home but somehow find a way inside anyway. One of these uninvited guests is an insect called a silverfish. No one wants to deal with insects and other pests crawling around their home, especially this time of year.

Are Silverfish Harmful?

The silverfish is a common household insect that can become quite an annoyance. The silverfish is a harmless insect, but they are never pleasant to have around, especially in your own home. Silverfish feed on a variety of items including books, dead skin cells and other starchy materials. If you have an extended library in your home, you are more likely to have silverfish. If you have pets walking around your home, then you are also more likely to have silverfish. Silverfish are excellent at hiding and you may not realize you have a problem until it is has grown into an infestation.

Where do Silverfish Come From?

Silverfish thrive in environments that are dark and wet. They are commonly found in laundry rooms, basements and bathrooms. As long as silverfish have a reliable food or water source available they will thrive in those types of environments. If you are experiencing a presence of silverfish in your home, it is important to first discover where it is they are coming from. Silverfish leave behind certain types of clues including damp, dark areas with small spots of excrement that look like black pepper.
