A silverfish is a small, wingless Orthopod found in the library, Archives, old cloth stores or even in houses in cupboards, ward robs where books or clothes are kept. The name Silver fish is derived from their silvery light grey color, combined with the fish-like appearance of its movements. The silverfish’s diet consists of carbohydrates such as sugar or starches. They damage the books and so it is a major pest of library and causes great damage of old and heritage documents.
