Fortunately, silverfish do NOT bite or harm humans. :)Bullsh*t. When I was 12, I recently had these silverish bugs in my room. I thought it was nothing intresting. I was a really filthy person, I had clothes everywhere in my room (my room is by the kitchen and bathroom, common places where silverfish might live) and well, one day I put on a pants on the ground (stupid idea) and I wore it out, the next day I had a HIGH fever and my left leg (about 5 inches below and above my knee) was covered all around red bumps, it was itchy and crazy burning hot. My mom thought it was nothing, so she didn't take me to the ER but, I felt horrible, there is no other bugs in my room, it was SILVERFISH. Therefore, Silverfish do BITE and HARM people.
