Silverfish are completely harmless and have absolutely no effect on your house or yourself.
They are their own taxa and are not insects per se.
They eat dust and stuff like that so I usually leave them where they are as they do absolutely no harm.Source(s): degree in biology with much entomology focus.

People wonder do silverfish bite, and the answer is that they do not straightforwardly harm humans that they live with and are not equipped with the physical apparatus that enable them to bite you.
Anyway, like most insects, they enjoy nice humid and dark areas,such as basements, attics, laundry rooms , or even washrooms. They will most likely rest, or eat mildew ,mold, paper, food..etc during the day.
It may get irritated or disturbed if you try to kill it, like most insects. To get rid of it, try cleaning , plugging holes that they could possibly enter from, spray the house..etc
Here are some sites to get rid of them :Source(s): http://www.silverfishcontrol.net/dosilverfishbite.... http://www.ehow.com/about_5091402_silverfish-eat.h...
