Try baking soda. My friend got rid of silverfish in her bathroom by putting baking soda close to her bathroom waterpipes and around the outside bottom of her tub and shower. Silverfish like dampness.

It's not so much moisture as it is to do with high humidity and then there are some common bristle tails that like warm and dry. They will be originating from the walls and attic space and treating the entry points which is usually the wall / ceiling penetrations with a residual insecticide can help keep them away, though the penetrations can be ceiling fixtures and skylights that can't be easily treated. If you are worried about them breeding in closet and drawers DEKKO makes a silverfish bait that can be found over the web.
