I caught all of these cuties in the utility room of a decrepit, abandoned college I explored with friends the past two days. They were running all along the walls and I'm sure I'd have caught dozens more if I stayed longer...I left behind a huge number of nymphs who were just too tiny to scoop up without harming them.
Sure, they're pests in some homes, but I very rarely see them and these are easily twice the size of the silverfish I'm used to.
I've heard that they breed slow and may cannibalize, but I'd still like to see if I can keep a population going...anyone experienced? I've heard they should never, ever be given water and that has been my experience with the few I've caught before (one drop, and they die within days) but is there anything else to them? They seem to love the fish flakes.
A booklouse was also running around in there, but it seems to have escaped (or gotten eaten?)
