Silverfish are primitive insects which belong to the insect order Thysanura. Several species enter houses and infest areas where starchy material such as paper, books and fabric are stored. They also occur in roof cavities. They are often found fallen into baths and sinks, for they cannot climb smooth surfaces.

Our technicians have undertaken extensive training in the treatment of Silverfish and are able to tailor a treatment plan for you. This treatment plan and some Integrated Pest Management Procedures that you can implement such as:

  • Humidity favours silverfish and attack is often found in book bindings. Air conditioned areas are seldom favoured by Silverfish.
  • Vacuum roof cavities and book storage facilities annually.

Will help us work with you to alleviate your Silverfish problem.
