Some things that get rid of silverfish are Boric Acid, Cloves, Cucumber peels, Citrus Fruits, Cinnamon, Cedar Shavings, Cedar Oil and Naphthalene balls.

Silverfish cannot and do not fly although silverfish can jump 2 feet vertically.

The silverfish is a species of small, primitive, wingless insect in the order Zygentoma.

Its common name derives from the animal's silvery light grey color, combined with the fish-like appearance of its movements.

Silverfish feed on starchy materials and items that are high in protein.

The Silverfish are active at night and cause damage to books, stored food, and clothing.

While these insects do cause problems, silverfish are not harmful to human health and do not carry any diseases.

Silverfish can jump up to 2 feet vertically but they cannot fly.

Also Silverfish love vegetable matter and will eat paper, glue, cardboard, toothpaste, silk, cotton, pasta, mold, cereals etc.

Silverfish and Earwigs are in the same class of insecta and some types of earwigs can fly because some earwigs have wings.

But silverfish are different and do not have the wings that allow them to fly but they can an do jump up to 2 feet vertically.

Also Silverfish are immune to most bug poisons so it can be hard to kill the bugs with the bug poisons and are to get rid of the Silverfish.
