Dr. Art Evans, entomologist and WCVE producer Steve Clark explore the soft under belly of one of the world’s most primitive insects, silverfish. Clad in shiny scales, these shy, nocturnal omnivores live in pantries or under stones and bark; a few species are specialists and prefer to live among the hustle and bustle of ant and termite colonies. As household pests, silverfish are capable of causing extensive damage by feeding on wallpaper paste, book bindings, paper products, and the starchy sizing of some fabrics.
