Do you have humidity bugs at home? That’s not good…

Animals have always served as an alert or indicator of something for human beings, thanks to their internal radars, highly developed senses or their instincts. An example of this is the migration of birds, which tells us that the seasons are changing. Or cows, which gather in groups when they sense that it is going to rain, to conserve their body heat.

Moisture bugs and their danger

If in your home or company you often come across small grey or white bugs about 10 millimetres long, with antennae, elongated bodies and angles, there is some kind of problem in that area. If you come across the so-called silverfish or also known colloquially as the humidity bugs, this indicates that you may have serious problems with humidity in this area, as it is the habitat of these animals. Moisture bugs live in environments with low light and high humidity levels. We tell you more below, thanks to being one of the references of the companies specialized in humidity:

Characteristics of the humidity bugs or silverfish

Its scientific name is Lepisma Saccharina or Flour Lepisma. Normally, they are difficult animals to see, as they have phototaxia, in other words, they flee from light and therefore hide from the human eye. Due to their habitat, they tend to appear mainly in bathrooms, where there is little light and where humidity predominates compared to other spaces.

Although at first sight these little creatures look harmless, we should not neglect their presence, as they represent a threat to your belongings. For example, humidity bugs usually feed on books or photographs, as well as silk, linen, cotton etc. garments, so they can wreak havoc if a plague appears. That is why, and why they are not usually visible to the naked eye, when we detect one we look for the problem causing it: dampness.

If we remove the humidity that we have at home or in any location or room, the habitat of this animal will disappear and with it the risks that they can cause.
