Silverfish Pest Control

Affordable Silverfish Pest Control

Silverfish Icon

Silverfish are considered household pests due to their consumption and destruction of property and contamination of food.

They eat a wide variety of foods that contain proteins and carbohydrates, including carpet, clothing, wallpaper, coffee, flour, starch, paper, glue, paste, photos and hair.

Silverfish are small, wingless, nocturnal insects, typically 13–25 mm long, silvery light grey in colour with a metallic shine, that move in a wiggling motion that resembles the movement of a fish. They  live for between two to eight years, avoid light and can be found living anywhere in the home, usually close to their food source.

Tips for Preventing Silverfish Infestations

Silverfish can be a nuisance around the home, but these few tips and tricks will help manage them:

  • Remove old stacks of newspapers, magazines, papers and fabrics to eliminate hiding places.
  • Don’t let food sit & spoil for a long time.
  • Reduce water availability by repairing leaky plumbing.
  • Move them into a more easily controlled area by turn on lights in a dark, infested area.
  • Keep food in sealed containers and packages.
  • Lower the home’s relative humidity, for example with a dehumidifier.

At Surekil Pest Control, our team is trained to effectively eliminate silverfish with the application of an approved professional insecticide. We also provide up to an 11-month warranty on our pest control services.
