Silverfish can be quite a challenge to deal with for Dallas homeowners. They easily invade area homes, tend to stay completely out of sight and cause destruction in lots of little ways in unseen areas. Homeowners are often surprised when they move something in the home, only to have a silverfish quickly scurry out from under it and into another hiding place. Further investigation reveals that there is more than one of them, and homeowners get concerned about how bad the infestation is and wonder what they can do about it.

All-Safe Pest & Termite can identify how bad the silverfish infestation is, and they know just what to do about it. Contact us today for all of your Dallas pest control needs. 

What Do Silverfish Look Like?

What are silverfish? Silverfish are small, elongated, and armored with scales. The scales themselves look somewhat like the scales on a fish. They have antennae on their heads and what look like antennae toward the back of their bodies. They very much prefer dark hiding places, especially if the hiding places are humid or moist. If exposed to light, they will quickly run for cover. They are surprisingly fast runners for their size. 

If running silverfish is ruining your day, All-Safe Pest & Termite can help you run them right out of your home. Call us today. We specialize in all manner of pest control, including silverfish.

Silverfish Infestations Can Be A Nuisance In Your Home

Homeowners never have to worry about a silverfish bite because silverfish don’t do that. They do, however, have the ability to cause a significant amount of damage in surprising ways. Silverfish love to nibble on paper goods, and what homeowners consider important papers, silverfish consider a buffet. And, speaking of buffets, silverfish also love the same kinds of food that you like and will readily infest any of your food sources they can access. The longer they are in your home, the more damage they can cause. They are also a very unsettling sight to see when homeowners are surprised by one running across their path.

Tips To Prevent Silverfish In Your Yard

Here are some easy tips to keep silverfish out of your yard and home:

  • Clean up debris piles. Silverfish and other pests love hiding underneath them.
  • Tightly seal trash/garbage cans. Garbage attracts silverfish.
  • Seal your home. Silverfish can fit through small spaces, be thorough.
  • Clean your counters. Silverfish will explore them for food.
  • Seal inside food tightly. Silverfish will get into open food stores.

These tips will help to reduce the potential for a silverfish infestation in your home but will not guarantee it. Silverfish are inquisitive and will eagerly try to explore your home. If you need silverfish pest control, All-Safe Pest & Termite should be your pest control company of choice.
