SILVERFISH

DEAR WTB,
I HAVE SEEN SILVERFISH ALL MY LIFE AND HAVE BEEN TERRIFIED OF THEM. I WAS TOLD BY MY
BIG SISTER THAT SILVERFISH WILL TRY TO BURROW INSIDE OF YOUR EARS. IT THAT TRUE?
WILL THEY HARM PEOPLE IN ANYWAY?

Dear Silverchicken,
I think your sister was pulling your leg. Earwigs, on the other hand, have a reputation for seeking
refuge in ears, hence their name. Earwigs will not burrow or do any permanent damage, they are just
seeking shelter. No need to fear silverfish or earwigs.

  1. The best part about this is it is harmless to other
    pets at home, harmless to house plants and leaves a pleasant citrus
    like smell around the home. Their diets consist of carbs, starches and protein.
    Ensure that any flour and sugar spills are cleansed up, to
    ensure that they do not have any food.

  2. Hello. I am trying to ID a black 1/2″ long x 1/8″
    worm like thing that was stinging my leg for several seconds. Freaked my it I brushed it away +could not find it. 2 weeks ago it was a small pink dot now it’s very itchy and close Tia 1″ circle. I didn’t see any detail on this worm like shape. Thought maybe a silverfish. Do I need a doctor visit?
