How To Identify A Silverfish

Silverfish are between 1/2 and 3/4 of an inch in length, silver-brown in color, and have armored scales. Their head is wide, and their body tapers as it moves toward the tail. They have large antennae. They prefer to hide in dark, moist areas; if disturbed, silverfish can run quite fast. They will seek to hide once discovered.

What Can Attract Silverfish To My Home?

What are silverfish attracted to? Silverfish are naturally attracted to clutter, especially when the clutter has lots of small, dark, tight spaces for them to hide. Further, silverfish are highly attracted to moisture, and areas like basements are a huge draw for them. Alternatively, silverfish are attracted to places in your home where leaking water creates a continuous water supply. Silverfish are naturally attracted to carbohydrates, proteins, cellulose, stored paper, cardboard boxes, wallpaper, and stored cereals. 

Many things will attract silverfish to your home, but only one best way to get them back out. All-Safe Pest & Termite is that way. Contact us when you see silverfish, and we will see that they are taken care of.

How Can I Stop Silverfish From Getting Into My Home?

Silverfish infestations are hard to detect. Silverfish naturally avoid light, and they tend to be nocturnal. They are very wary and can detect danger from long distances and then move quickly to get away from it. They do not hesitate to start running when disturbed. Worse, DIY pest control efforts are ineffective on silverfish, who tend to avoid interacting with bait traps. Given that, here are some tips that can help you keep silverfish from getting into your home:

  • Clean up clutter. Silverfish love hiding in clutter.
  • Seal your home. Silverfish are small. Be diligent and seal your home well.
  • Seal stored paper. Exposed stacks of magazines and personal papers attract silverfish.
  • Keep floors clean. Silverfish love exploring for crumbs in your home. 

These are some ways to help minimize the risk of getting silverfish in your home, but silverfish are small and can get into almost any house. If you find silverfish in yours, you need to call All-Safe Pest & Termite, and soon. Don't let silverfish cause damage to your home. Let us help you get them out.
