As indicated by its name, the common silverfish (Lepisma saccharina) can be found in many homes across North America. They prefer dark, damp locations close to an abundant food source. Nocturnal by nature, these insects can go undetected for a long time before being discovered, usually when a homeowner discovers the damage they have done.
