Will silverfish eat drywall paper and tape?

I have one wall in the bedroom between a corner and a window that the tape joints have deteriorated and when I chipped at them with my finger a silverfish came out. What happens to the silverfish after they eat the Dekko Silverfish pack?


Silverfish are known to eat the adhesive that is used on tape and on the drywall paper. The Dekko Silverfish Packs are formulated with the active ingredient boric acid. While Dekko is safe to use around people and pets, it is deadly to insects and soon after the silverfish ingest the boric acid they will die.
