Silverfish

More than just a nuisance in homes, Silverfish are known for their destructive feeding habits and can cause a serious problem in large numbers – damaging books, photographs, paintings, plaster and other household items containing starch or cellulose.

Silverfish survive in most environments, but thrive in conditions of high humidity and can often be found in dark, damp areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, basements and attics.

Characterised by a silvery-blue colour, tiny scales and wiggling movements resembling that of a fish – these pest are also commonly known as fish moths or carpet sharks.

How To Identify Silverfish

It is important to identify silverfish in order to establish the degree of infestation that is taking place in your house.

Silverfish Appearance:

  • Silver, blue or grey in colour
  • Tapered, tail-like appearance
  • Wingless with two slender antennas
  • 10-12mm in length 

Silverfish Treatment

If you spot silverfish in your house or workplace, you need to act immediately in order to avoid significant property damage. To get rid of silverfish yourself, the following steps should be taken:

  • Sufficiently ventilate the property by using dehumidifiers or opening windows.
  • Deny them of any sort of sustenance by reducing the level of dust and vacuuming damp areas of the property.
  • Food should be stored in properly sealed containers to prevent them from reaching their food sources.

While it is possible to get rid of silverfish yourself, professional treatment is advised to tackle larger infestations and to ensure the infestation will not return.

A Silverfish infestation requires treatment of both adult silverfish and their harbourage. Our qualified technicians will be able to assess the situation and advise on the most effective treatments to manage the infestation in your home or business.
