How to Identify Silverfish Infestations
- As you can guess from their name, silverfish have a silvery body which looks like a small fish.
- Common signs of silverfish infestation include small holes and cavities in fabrics, books, cardboard boxes, and food.
- Silverfish prefer to live in dark and damp places such as basements, laundry rooms, under sinks, and kitchen.
- Silverfishes cast their molts during adult stage. Finding them is one of the earliest warning signs that you need Professional Pest Control Services.
- As we said before, silverfish will eat almost everything they can find. They can even make holes in wallpapers while feeding on them.
- Irregular tears and rips in book and bindings also indicate silverfish infestations.
- These pests often leave yellow stains on paper and fabrics after feeding.
Do you know that silverfish have existed on Earth for more than 100 million years? These pests have adapted their body in several ways to hide and fight against various predators.
Silverfish Extermination and Prevention
Prevention and control of silverfish infestations can be quite difficult if you don’t have required skill and knowledge. Most commercial pest killing sprays sold in shops and supermarkets contain poisonous chemicals which can be harmful for your pets and children. Hiring VIP Pest Management services will help you get rid of all silverfish infestation problems.
Here are a Few Tips from Our Experts to Prevent and Control Silverfish Infestations:
- Reduce dampness and moistness in and around the property. You should aim to make your premises as inhospitable for them as possible.
- Use dehumidifiers to eliminate humidity inside the household as silverfishes thrive most in such environments. You can also reduce humidity by ventilating enclosed spaces, getting rid of standing water, and by simply turning on air conditioners.
- Keep sticky and moist food items in sealed containers.
- Vacuum cracks and splits within walls regularly.
