If you’re concerned that your home or business is being invaded by silverfish, you may need the help of Alternative Pest Management. Silverfish reproduce rapidly, so it’s important to control the infestation as soon as possible. The insect control authorities at Alternative Pest Management can work quickly and efficiently to rid your residence of the uninvited guests.
Silverfish may be silver-blue, gray-brown or white in appearance, and they measure anywhere from 12 to 20 millimeters in length. They are nocturnal, and they move extremely quick. In many cases, the insects go unnoticed for extended periods of time. If you find the bristly, carrot-shaped pests in your bathroom, kitchen, attic or basement, your home or business may already be under attack.
What they feed on
The pesky bugs feed on clothing, paper, dead insects and glue. Silverfish also consume an assortment of foods, so seal any open food sources to prevent kitchen invasions. If you see evidence of their feeding damage, it may be best to speak to one of our pest management specialists. Silverfish can thrive in virtually any environment, but they seek out areas that are dark with high humidity (75% to 90%).
Environmentally friendly silverfish exterminators
Some people use store-bought traps or insecticides to control silverfish, but these methods only kill insects that come into contact with the source.
To prevent continual invasions, it’s necessary to destroy the entire colony. Controlling humidity is an adequate method for preventing infestations in your home or business. Ensure that your basement, crawl spaces and attic are properly ventilated, and use dehumidifiers when possible. We recommend working with one of our experts who will assess your situation and design an effective and customized plan of control.
