SILVERFISH

Silverfish are nocturnal insects typically 13–25 mm (0.5–1.0 in) long.... Like other species in Apterygota, silverfish are completely wingless.

They can be found in attics, basements, bathtubs, sinks, kitchens, old books, classrooms, and showers.

Silverfish consume matter that contains polysaccharides, such as starches and dextrin in adhesives. These include book bindings, carpet, clothing, coffee, dandruff, glue, hair, some paints, paper, photos, plaster, and sugar.
