Silverfish Control

Silverfish in Irving, TX

Silverfish have long, slender and flat bodies that grow smaller the closer you get to their back end. They can be anywhere from ¾ of an inch to ½ an inch in length and are silver in color. Silverfish cannot fly, and they cannot climb very well either. Often times you will come across silverfish at night as they are nocturnal. They thrive in areas of high moisture such as a laundry room or basement.

To keep silverfish out of your home, the easiest thing to do is make sure that you keep the humidity low in your home. Silverfish are not able to live in low humidity areas, and so by lowering the humidity in your home they will not be able to survive, nor will they be inclined to hang out should they enter your property.

Silverfish can cause damage to many different items in a home such as paper, cardboard, wallpaper pastes, book bindings, starches and linen. They like to eat these items because of the fibers they contain.

How to Prevent Them

Below are some prevention tips to help you keep silverfish out of your home:

1. Fix any leaky pipes in and around the home. Be sure to check the basement and laundry room or anywhere else that water is or was present.

2. If you have boxes, clothing, or furniture stored in the attic then it would be in your best interest to inspect them for damage, such as tiny holes from chewing.

3. Seal up any holes, cracks, crevices or other entry ways that can be seen on the exterior of the home.

4. It is extremely important to keep the basement, laundry room and bathroom dry at all times; especially the bath tub!
