I've had our home fumigated, but the silverfish seem to return unaffected.

Are their eggs unaffected?

What's the best way to eliminate them from your home?

  • $\begingroup$ If you say "return", haven't they just re-populated your house? $\endgroup$ – AliceD Jan 16 '15 at 9:17

They feed on fungi, which grow wherever there's high humidity levels. So the best way to get rid of them would be to lower the air humidity. For example, by increasing the temperature in your (presumably) bathroom.
