The Risks of Silverfish

Even though they are small, silverfish can cause various problems in your home.

  • Property Damage - As mentioned, silverfish love a damp, dark place and will feast on books, walls, painting and other cellulose-containing matter in your home. They love leather clothing as well and can cause serious problems if left untreated.
  • Food Spoilage – Silverfish can get into your pantry and will ruin food that they run all over.
  • Nuisance. An infestation of silverfish is not only unsightly; it’s unnerving to have them running around your home.

 

Silverfish Control in Your Home

The silverfish belongs to the Lepisma species and will cause damage to your home by eating food or other materials that are high in starches. They are nocturnal as an insect and for that reason aren’t usually seen by day. They may be found in a new building where masonry is still damp and can be brought into your home by cardboard cartons, books and papers.

 

Signs of Silverfish Infestation

  • Silverfish sightings – This is a great indicator that you are dealing with a silverfish problem. If you find one, there’s a great chance that there are many more hiding.
  • Silverfish droppings – You want to be on the lookout for any droppings that look like tiny peppercorns in places like food storage areas, boxes and bags.
  • Silverfish damage – The biggest sign of an infestation is a whole heap of evidence from silverfish feasting on your items. You can find holes in books and wallpaper which is usually a pretty big clue.

 

Tips Silverfish Pest Control

  • Dehumidify your home. Because silverfish love a dark and damp place to live in, you need to reverse this environment. Use a dehumidifier to dry out the air in a damp room, and make sure you air everything out really
  • Clean up. If you have a bunch of old boxes with books and papers in them, it’s important that you clean this stuff out, pronto. Silverfish will just love to lurk in these boxes eating all that tasty paper.
  • Seal up your home. You want to keep silverfish from entering your home again, so make sure you seal up any cracks and holes that allow these insects to get in.
