Pest problems are our specialty, and silverfish removal is no exception. Silverfish are very common insects and can be found in nearly any home in Canada.
Detecting the presence of silverfish in your home can be difficult because they are nocturnal insects. Silverfish are often shy and move quickly, scattering in the presence of lights or humans. Because these pests are difficult to track, infestation can go unnoticed for long periods of time. Silverfish removal should be carried out as soon as possible in order to prevent large-scale population growth. These pests lay their eggs in dark, moist places, ordinarily in cracks or crevices near an available food source.
Silverfish resemble their namesakes, with enlarged heads and thin back ends. These insects resemble carrots when pulled from the ground and are recognizable by their three tails and two large antennae. Bodies vary in colour from white (freshly hatched) to shiny silver (elder silverfish). It can take anywhere from 30 days to 3 years for a silverfish to reach full maturity and they can live anywhere from 2-8 years. Silverfish are wingless but wiggle themselves from side to side in order to gain mobility.
Silverfish can search for long distances for a viable food source but once they find one, they dig in their heels and stay. In addition to conventional food sources, silverfish can survive on natural textiles as well, finding feasts in unexpected places. Different pastes such as wallpaper glue, the binding on books and paper are simple appetizers for these insects as well as clothing, different types of linen and other textiles.
