Firebrats are closely related to the silverfish in appearance and really just about everything else. They do prefer more humid environments with a higher temperature. They eat a wide variety of things high in protein, sugar, and starch. This includes fabrics, glue in book bindings, flour, and cereal products. Yes, they have come for your lucky charms.They are quick little devils too. I would have liked to have gotten a better shot of this fella, but they are camera shy. Im fairly certain that a better photo opportunity won’t come up.
UPDATE! A new one must have read this post and decided to pose for a new photo. See below.
