How to get rid of Silverfish

Drake Pest Control Orlando

It’s tough to get rid of silverfish when you can barely see them scamper across the floor. Silverfish are fast runners that can live in most climates often in the damp, cool places of the home. They’re not picky and will feed on almost anything. They eat paper, cardboard, damp clothing, wallpaper glue, and even book bindings. So how do you get rid of them? First, you can fight silverfish with a thorough home cleaning, and if that’s not enough or if an infestation has started, it’s time to call in a professional.

When you clean your home be sure to get every room of the house, especially the garage or in the shed if you have items stored in cardboard boxes. If items are stored in cardboard consider switching to plastic for more protection. Silverfish can survive almost anywhere, but they prefer to dwell in dark and damp areas like basements, attics, kitchen corners, and bathrooms as well. Silverfish are not aggressive but have their appetite can cause some serious home damage.

If your house already has a silverfish infestation, your home will require professional treatment. Our Drake Pest experts will be able to assess the situation and determine the most efficient method of extermination. Scheduling a routine home inspection can help you keep silverfish and another pests away from your home for good. Contact us here for a quote or home inspection or call 866-815-DUCK.
