About Booklice

Booklice are common household pests but harmless to humans. Booklice do not bite, transmit disease, damage food or fabric, but they can be very annoying as they can quickly grow in numbers.


Booklice feed on mould caused by damp conditions. They are also fed on microscopic moulds that grow on damp cardboard, damp food or on the surfaces close to damp plaster inside buildings.


Booklice usually were found in cupboards, dark and humid storage rooms, inside books and magazine, behind or underneath kitchen appliances.
