Silverfish

Silverfish Control

Capable of thriving in most climates, Silverfish prefer to dwell in dark, damp areas such as basements, attics, kitchens and bathrooms. They are especially attracted to paper and damp clothing. Commonly found in stored boxes in garages and sheds.

Silverfish are known for their destructive feeding habits, oftentimes ruining papers, clothing and wallpaper. Silverfish feed on carbohydrates, particularly sugars and starches. Cellulose, shampoos, glue in books, linen, silk and dead insects may be food sources. They have been found in unopened food packages.

Homeowners often transport Silverfish indoors unknowingly. When brought inside the home, cardboard boxes and plastic containers recently stored in infested areas can allow the pests to spread.

Warm and moist spaces, like basements and crawl spaces, attract Silverfish. The pests will enter homes through foundation cracks or gaps around doors.

Signs of Silverfish

Most often, homeowners detect Silverfish when they find one on the floor or in a sink or bathtub. Their feeding damage also can indicate their presence, along with their tiny pepper-like faeces.

Silverfish also eat grains and chew large holes into upholstery, or paper. In large numbers, they can cause a lot of damage. Ruined items often include stored files, books, and clothes.
