I have a lot of wallpaper in my home and silverfish love the paste! Silverfish also hate cinnamon, mine seem to come down from the attic. I buy that cheap 50 cent a bottle cinnamon and throw it all over my attic. I also sprinkle it in my closets, it's non toxic and makes your house smell good too! If I store books, I cover the books with tissue and sprinkle inside of the box.
But don't ants like cinnamon?

Does this actually work? Please let me know how if this has worked? I have had this problem for sometime. I used sprays and they were gone during the winter. I noticed one on my bed...and that was it for me! Can you please provide help!
I have also heard that they hate bay leaves. I have recently noticed some of these pests around my books. Luckily, I have a large bay bush and have picked several leaves to sprinkle around my bookshelves yesterday. Let's see if this works as books are too expensive too be munched!
