Silverfish are among the most ancient of insects. Capable of thriving in most climates,
silverfish prefer to dwell in dark, damp areas such as basements, attics, kitchens and
bathrooms. They are especially attracted to paper and damp clothing. Commonly found in
stored boxes in garages and sheds. Silverfish are known for their destructive feeding
habits, oftentimes ruining papers, clothing and wallpaper. Silverfish feed on carbohydrates, particularly sugars and starches. Cellulose, shampoos, glue in books, linen, silk and dead insects may be food sources. They have been found in unopened food packages.
The wasp is medium sized flying insect that is found all around the world. The wasp is
known for its black and yellow markings which means that some wasp and bee species are commonly confused. The wasp is most commonly known for its poisonous sting, that if a human is stung can often swell into a painful lump that takes a few days to soothe. Some people are allergic to wasp stings meaning the wasp sting can be fatal.
Female mud daubers construct nests of mud. Many short mud tubes, usually about 1" long, are constructed side by side. They usually build their nests in a sheltered site, such as under eaves, porch ceilings, in garages and sheds left open, in barns and attics, etc.
Millipedes belong to Class Diplopoda and are more rigid arthropods distinguishable by
