If the small bugs running from you and any source of light make a wriggling motion as they move, you are likely dealing with silverfish. These pests can be tricky, but they are not impossible to deal with. Toodaloo has the experience to back that up. So for Portage La Prairie silverfish control and removal, you can trust our services to be prompt and effective.
Silverfish are named because they resemble fish in a number of ways. For one, they move from side to side very quickly, making it look as though they are swimming. They also have larger heads and longer, tapered bodies. Finally, they also have shiny, scaled bodies that are silver in colour. The main visual difference between them is their long antennae and three tails.
One of the reasons these insects are such a bother to property owners is because half of what they eat is the items which belong to us. They have a particular weakness for sweet or starchy materials. Anything with pastes or glues or certain kinds of paints is fair game for them. That includes paper products such as books or cardboard, or even linens and cloths such as clothing, carpeting, curtains, or even furniture. In order to get them to stop, you have to get them out.
At Toodaloo, our technicians have years of experience and training, and they are outfitted with the best in tools and technology. Silverfish pose no great problem to them. They understand how these insects work. And knowing your enemy is a great advantage in trying to take them down. For instance, they are nocturnal creatures, and like places that are cool and damp. So we know where to start looking and when.
All infestations must end sometime. We can make it that time. Give us a call at 1-844-TOODALOO (866-3250).
