    Silverfish Pest Control and Removal Services

    Silverfish move easily and are great climbers. They can live without food or water for weeks, but need a 70 to 90% elevated humidity environment. Silverfish prefer (70-85 degrees F/21-29 degrees C) room temperature regions. They are nocturnal and during the day they tend to hide or rest in close cracks or crevices.

    Silverfish are known to infest commercial structures such as offices, shops and libraries. Through cardboard cartons of books and papers from an infested area, they are often introduced into buildings. When looking for food, they can wander quite some distance, but once they find a satisfactory food source, they stay close to it. They can breed in a number of areas inside buildings, including wall voids, in / under the subfloors, attics, etc.

    What do they eat?

    Silverfish usually feed on paper, glue, apparel and food products, such as flour and rolled oats. They prefer proteins to carbohydrates and are cannibalistic, like dried beef and dead or wounded of their species, their favourite protein meals.

    Signs of silverfish infestation

    • Paper damage: Since silverfish are paper eaters, a definite tell-tale sign of their presence in your home is finding damage on paper or cardboard items. Whether we’re talking storage boxes, wallpaper, or books – this little hellspawn might be involved. Pay close attention to food containers filled with starchy carbs. If something is eating away at your cereal box, you probably have a silverfish infestation.
    • Shed Skin: Silverfish shed their skin throughout their life cycle. These outer shells are small and delicate, but with proper examination, they can be another important clue to a possible infestation.
    • Yellow stains or Dust: If you do not notice the actual skins, you might see yellowish dust that is left on surfaces as they molt. You may also see yellow stains in books, papers, and cardboard boxes indicating that silverfish have been there.

    If a silverfish infestation is suspected or found, it’s best to call Hire Us 4 Pest Control a licensed pest control professional where their expert team of technicians properly inspect your premises and recommend the appropriate treatment method.
