Spiders & Silverfish : What you need to know

Spiders and silverfish are very different and require completely different methods of control. Spiders actually hunt silverfish as a source of food, the habits and behaviors of spiders and silverfish are very different.

Basic biology

Spiders

Female spiders produce an egg sac rather than individual eggs, from this sac spider-lings emerge. These spider-lings then go through a serious of molts where they become full adults.

Male spiders of many species will court the female, this is usually a dangerous process for the male as most times after courting the male becomes food for the female.

Silverfish

Male silverfish will perform a dance before they are able to mate with a female silverfish. The male silverfish lays spermatophores which are then taken in by the ovipositor found in the female. Depending on the species the female will lay several eggs a day or lay egg clusters ranging from 2 to 20 eggs.
