Silverfish are one of those pests that can be sharing your living space secretly for years. These pests slither around the dark, damp and low-traffic areas of your home or commercial space. Just finding silverfish is half the battle to get rid of silverfish. If you are noticing silverfish slithering around your property, chances are that you are dealing with a full-blown infestation. By the time that you begin to notice silverfish, there are dozens of these pests hiding out behind the scenes. Call Toodaloo instead of letting silverfish make a meal out of your property. These destructive pests don’t stand a chance against our Hamilton silverfish removal services!
Unlike some other pests, silverfish keep to themselves. Silverfish are nocturnal, quiet, and not very big. There is a reason that silverfish infestations go unnoticed for so long but just because they are not obvious pests, doesn’t mean they aren’t causing damage. Silverfish are some of the most destructive pests around! They might not gnaw, scratch or scrape like rodents but the silverfish diet is not exactly kind to property owners. Like other pests, silverfish are happy to collect crumbs from around kitchens but their diet is an overall broad one. Silverfish can make meals of all the usual suspects from around kitchens or family spaces. Crumbs, spills and any discarded food can be a feast for the silverfish in your home. In addition to sharing a menu with humans, silverfish eat up other organic materials as well. Paper and cardboard boxes are often left in basements and crawlspaces but they are in more danger than you might think. Paper products, textiles, adhesives and everything with a cellulose base are all food sources for silverfish. This combination of broad diet and a sneaky disposition is a perfect storm for property damage!
As it comes to light that pests are roaming around your home, it is no uncommon for property owners to try their hand at killing silverfish. Some of the most common practices involve diatomaceous earth or boric acid. Throwing down chemicals or blocking off areas with masking tape might keep pests out of one area temporarily, but silverfish are tougher than that!
Unlike certain other pests, silverfish do not have a set home or nest. When you are trying to track down silverfish, it is important to know how they work. The eggs of silverfish, for example, are laid around damp or humid areas, and in cozy nooks and crannies. In their early life stages, silverfish are difficult to spot, while adult silverfish are speedy and known to travel.
