For most property owners, the usual suspects for pest infestations are mice, spiders or even roaches but there is a more sinister insect taking over homes in the Chilliwack area. Silverfish have a habit of slithering into your home or business and staying put over long periods. If you have recently caught site of these destructive pests, don’t hesitate to call in the professionals!
Certain insects are easy to ignore, and those of the slithering variety are no exception. Silverfish are nocturnal, small, darkly coloured and sneaky. While these pests fly under the radar, they are always growing their numbers. It does not take long for a few silverfish to turn into a full-blown infestation. These insects grow their numbers by tucking eggs into cracks and crevices. This allows traffic to pass right over these vulnerable critters. This allows them to grow into the destructive pests that property owners know and loathe. As numbers swell, proper silverfish control becomes more and more difficult.
Instead of sticking to crumbs like ants or blood meals, like bed bugs, silverfish stray away from standard food sources. Sure, these unwelcome visitors cruise around kitchen cabinets but anything that is natural or cellulose-based is up for grabs with these ravenous intruders. Damp environments, like basements or attics are like 5-star hotels to silverfish. Material like organic adhesives, paper, books, and even cardboard boxes serve as meals for silverfish. Don’t let pest problems eat you out of house and home when professional pest control services can help.
Instead of arriving on-scene with a box of boric acid or diatomaceous earth, our Toodaloo technicians know that silverfish infestations require the big guns. It is difficult enough to remove pests from residential properties but commercial pest control for these insects is even tougher. Plenty of people apply silverfish traps to tricky areas, but these are only temporary measures.
Professional pest control services can apply both chemical or non-chemical treatments to ditch unwanted insects.
In addition to getting rid of the bugs themselves, our Toodaloo technicians educated clients in the best way to prevent future infestations. Drying out problem areas, reduces moisture and makes your property less appealing to pests.
Our Toodaloo technicians are fully trained in various methods of pest removal and extermination, capable of handling any job, of any size, professionally and efficiently. Unlike some other pest control companies our removal solutions are environmentally friendly so you know that there are no harmful chemicals being sprayed throughout your home.
