Since silverfish are largely floor-level travelling pests and if the
thought of chemicals and lower humidity are unappealing, I would
suggest using sticky traps.  On the occasion that we have had (only)
slight increases in silverfish populations, these traps have been
the most effective deterrent but initially need to be checked and/or
changed every 24 hours.
