Inspection and Identification

Begin by thoroughly inspecting your home to identify the extent of the silverfish infestation. Look for signs such as shed skins, droppings, and damage to paper, books, and fabrics. Common areas to check include basements, bathrooms, kitchens, and attics.

Reducing Humidity

Silverfish thrive in moist environments, so reducing humidity is crucial. Use dehumidifiers in damp areas, ensure proper ventilation in bathrooms and kitchens, and fix any leaks or water damage. Additionally, consider using moisture-absorbing materials like silica gel in storage areas.

Cleaning and Decluttering

Maintain a clean living space by regularly vacuuming and dusting to remove food particles, dust, and debris that attract silverfish. Declutter storage areas, eliminating old newspapers, magazines, and cardboard boxes, which can serve as food sources and hiding places.

Sealing Entry Points

Prevent silverfish from entering your home by sealing cracks and crevices in walls, floors, and foundations. Use caulk or weather stripping around windows, doors, and utility pipes to block potential entry points.

Chemical Treatments

Apply insecticides specifically designed for silverfish control. Use residual sprays, dusts, or baits in areas where silverfish are commonly found, such as baseboards, behind appliances, and in closets. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and safety precautions when using chemical treatments.

Natural Remedies

Consider natural alternatives like diatomaceous earth or boric acid, which are effective against silverfish. Sprinkle these substances in infested areas, and they will dehydrate and kill the insects upon contact. Additionally, essential oils like lavender, cedarwood, and citrus can repel silverfish when used as sprays or in sachets.

Maintenance

It is our commitment to provide timely and effective control for our customers, but without a regularly scheduled maintenance program, infestations are sure to reoccur, since scorpions will migrate from neighboring properties.
