How to get rid of silverfish?To get this pest problem under control, the first step is to Request a Free Inspection.

Silverfish can contaminate foods and cause damage through their chewing and eating of paper and books, staining of clothing and furniture, and damage to curtains and wallpaper. Silverfish may come into your home from outdoors seeking moisture, or may ride in on lumber or wallboard.

Silverfish have no wings, but have fine scales covering their brownish bodies, making them appear silvery in color. These long, flatly oval insects are most easily identified by their three long tail projections. They like warm, moist environments.

PEST CONTROLA female silverfish will lay her eggs in cracks, cloth or even food, laying up to 200 at one time.

Silverfish are known for their destructive feeding habits. They consume matter such as starches and dextrin in adhesives which include book bindings, carpet, clothing, coffee, dandruff, glue, hair, some paints, paper, photos, plaster and sugar.

The Campbell Man can come periodically to monitor your home and help prevent an infestation of SILVERFISH.
