Pests are a problem for many homes, but silverfish are one of the most difficult to deal with. This is because they are small, quick, and they breed quickly. The best way to make sure you get rid of this problematic silverfish infestation is to contact R&D Pest Services. Our technicians have a large amount of experience dealing with infestations of all kinds of pests including silverfish. Our team will not only effectively treat the infestation but will educate you on measures you can take to deter them from coming back. It is important to turn to pest control professionals such as the ones at R&D Pest Services if you have an infestation of silverfish because they require the use of professional-grade treatments which you may not have access to at home.
Silverfish are often found in homes due to their love of warmth and food. If there is a water leak in the home, it will create dampness that silverfish enjoy. They can be found often behind furniture, in bookshelves, basements, and in pantries. Silverfish are known to invade your Southern California property through cracks in the foundation, gaps around doors and windows, or damaged screens.
How To Identify
Although silverfish are fairly easy to identify based on their appearance, finding them, to begin with, can be slightly difficult due to their small size.
Silverfish have a long and flat body and are usually anywhere from ½ an inch to an inch in length. Silverfish got their name from the color of their bodies, they are light gray in color but boast a shimmering silver look as they move across surfaces.
Although silverfish primarily seek out starches and protein-rich foods, they are known to eat cereal, pet food, fibers, and even paste on the underside of wallpaper and books. Some of the most notable signs of a silverfish infestation other than spotting large amounts of them in your home are yellow stains and feeding marks. Silverfish tend to hide during the lighter hours of the day because they are nocturnal meaning you will likely only spot them at night or when lights are off.
Silverfish like many other pests are innately attracted to moisture and humidity. You will most likely encounter groups of silverfish in and around kitchen sinks, laundry rooms, inside cabinets, and garages.
Did you know silverfish are prehistoric? They’ve been on our planet for over 400 million years!
Effects Silverfish Can Have On Your Property
Silverfish are commonly mistaken for centipedes however they are not known to bite or sting humans and don’t carry diseases. While these prehistoric pests aren’t dangerous to humans they can be harmful to your Southern California property.
Silverfish have weak jaws so instead of biting they tend to scrape or drag. Large numbers of silverfish can wreak havoc on clothes, furniture, paper, and starchy foods. In addition to damaging objects because of their diet, they also leave behind a yellow residue which is their fecal matter.
In conclusion, if you spot a number of silverfish in your home it’s a good idea to contact R&D Pest Services right away to avoid damages to your homes such as your wallpaper, floor coverings, fabric clothing, books, files, and more. Silverfish are more of a nuisance than a physically harmful pest on your property. Because of their ability to quickly breed and multiply in numbers, it’s crucial to have the infestation treated and controlled professionally as soon as possible.
