While Canadians are used to hiding indoors from the humidity, there are always other creatures who enjoy the hike in temperature - namely silverfish! For homes and businesses in high-humidity and high-moisture areas, these are a common pest. In fact, the majority of households are putting a roof over these pests without ever knowing it. Despite their quiet and nocturnal nature, these creep crawlers are some of the most destructive guests around. If you suspect that you are dealing with an infestation, call Toodaloo for your silverfish removal.
Making Life Uncomfortable for Pests
Silverfish are small, dark in colour and very quick - because of this, they can go long periods without being noticed. Instead of raiding pantries like rodents do, silverfish have a broad diet that includes anything with an organic base. Paper, is a major food staple for these pests. Cardboard boxes might make their way into basements and attics, but they are also meals for silverfish. Clothing, book binding and even adhesives are worn away bite by bite. Trying to tackle this infestation without the right technique or training will only prolong your infestation and lead to more damage. In order to get rid of silverfish properly, it is important to not only get rid of populations, but to make your living space so uncomfortable for them that they won’t want to come back. Finding a way to limit humidity is important for more reasons than just pest control. Working alongside a professional service treats and removes silverfish populations at every stage of their life cycle. Don’t spend another day letting these insects eat you out of house and home when a Toodaloo technician is only a phone call away.
