Will leaving my light on stop silverfish at night?Watch
edit: I meant to say 'No, you want to reduce humidity in the room' but it sent before I finished lol
It might make them run away from wherever you found them but in terms of stopping them from breeding there it wont do much. I used to live in a rundown flat back before 2009 and we used to have them in big numbers there sometimes. We got a dehumidifier and left it in the corner of where they were and they never came back. They seem to live in damp areas. I get what you're saying about the light though, when we turned the room light on back then we used to see some run into the corner.
Thanks so much. To be honest my biggest fear is waking up with one (or multiple) on my bed sheets. Did that ever happen to you? How can I stop it?
I would dry out the room or areas you see them with a dehumidifier (you can get disposables from like Wilko's or something for cheap) and maybe look into the oils people recommend on other websites if you want to take extra precautions. I think as long as you keep the place dry and clean you will be fine

I made a thread about this last night, but these nocturnal bugs suddenly appear on the carpet when the light is off and when I turn my flashlight on to check, they quickly scurry under the bed. I have an eye mask, so I’m considering leaving a lamp on just to keep them away. Will it work?
No, there will be thousands living in the walls and under the floor as silverfish like damp. They come out at night because they like cool and dark conditions so leaving the light on would do nothing as they would still be in the cavities in the rest of your house.
