They are in my bathroom. I don't see them every day, and not a lot of them, but enough to bother me (which is any lol). I have no crawling babies, but I do have a dog, so it needs to be non-toxic to mammals.

Thanks!

I don't know, but those things FREAK ME OUT!!! I used to get those in the bathroom too, until we remodeled in there. All I know is that they are attracted to dampness, which is impossible to take care of in a bathroom. I hope someone can help.

I think the traps would be the least toxic, that or the dessicant powder. One of the links said that the dessicant powder is often used as flea powder for cats and dogs. I haven't tried any of these methods. I was intrigued by the thread title. I didn't know what silverfish looked like. Good luck!
