I’ve noticed the occasional silverfish in the kitchen, bathroom and shower room. Is it water they are attracted to? How can I get rid of them please ?

Yes, they love humid atmospheres, so if you can air your bathroom after showering, and use an extractor fan when cooking, that will help. Check you haven't got a leak anywhere. They are also rumoured to love starch, so check out your kitchen cubboards!
