Silverfish

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Silverfish Dangerous?

Silverfish are generally considered nuisance pests and are not dangerous to humans. They do not bite or sting and are not known to transmit diseases. However, silverfish can cause damage to fabrics, paper, and other materials when they enter homes. Their presence may also indicate underlying moisture issues in a home.

Why do I have a Silverfish problem?

Silverfish are attracted to properties that offer them dark, moist environments and access to food sources such as paper, fabrics, and starches. They may enter homes and buildings in search of warmth, moisture, and food. Poorly sealed doors, windows, or gaps in walls can allow silverfish to gain entry to your property.

Where will I find Silverfish?

Silverfish can be found both indoors and outdoors. Outside, they may be found in dark, damp areas such as leaf litter or under rocks. Inside, they may be found in dark, moist areas like basements, bathrooms, laundry rooms, or near heating and cooling systems. They are most active at night and are more likely to be encountered during the evening hours.

How do I get rid of Silverfish?

To get rid of silverfish, first identify the areas where they are congregating. Implement proper sanitation practices, reduce clutter, and eliminate moisture issues in and around your home. Seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows to prevent silverfish from entering. Use insecticides, baits, or traps as needed. For persistent infestations, consider hiring a professional pest control service.

How can I prevent Silverfish?

Preventing silverfish involves maintaining a clean and clutter-free property, addressing moisture issues, and sealing any entry points. Regularly clean both inside and outside your home, paying special attention to potential hiding spots. Repair any water leaks, control humidity levels, and seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows.
