Silverfish don’t pose a major threat to people or property, but if you have a silverfish problem at home or work, getting rid of silverfish before the infestation becomes more noticeable and more difficult (and expensive) to treat is likely to be a high priority. Silverfish don’t bite and aren’t aggressive like wasps or some bees and ants, but they can cause an allergic reaction in some people, and they can also be very destructive and chew through books, clothes and other personal items.
What’s more, silverfish are an unsightly insect that understandably makes some people feel uneasy. Wondering how to get rid of silverfish fast and stop them from coming back? Call a local pest control specialist and then fix the problem that’s attracting the silverfish, whether that’s a leaking pipe, a lack of ventilation or allowing food debris to accumulate. With quality pest control and preventative measures, you can remove silverfish from your home for good.
Is The Problem Silverfish?
Not sure if the problem is silverfish or another insect? Silverfish are usually found in dark and damp places, including bathrooms, kitchens and garages, and feed on a variety of starchy, sugary and high-cellulose materials like books, paper and cardboard, clothes and fabrics, wallpaper and other materials. They’re also attracted to certain foods, like coffee, sugar and pasta, which means infestations are often most noticeable in pantries and rubbish disposal areas of kitchens. Silverfish are quite distinctive and generally very easy to spot:
- Colour: Bluish-silver, white or brown-grey
- Length: 12 to 20 mm
- Body shape: Long, teardrop-shaped
- Tail: Tail has three long bristles
