They may be one of the weirder pests you may come across, but silverfish are a common problem for Canadians. They make up a larger percentage of infestations than one might think, and that is probably because of how sneaky they can be. If you suspect you have a silverfish problem on your hands, just call us for our Vaughan silverfish control and removal services.
These silvery insects have two long antennae and three tails. They move from side to side in a way that is reminiscent of fish swimming in water (hence the name), and they like to hide out in cool, damp, and dark places. You may find them in the basement or in bathrooms, but often you will not find them at all. They don’t like the light very much, and they like being bothered even less.
If the large numbers don’t scare you, perhaps the way they eat bits of your home will. Silverfish love sugars and starches, and will be drawn to papery materials such as books, cardboard, or wallpaper for the glues and pastes. They will even consume certain kinds of paints. They also like linens and carpets, and dead insects can make it into their diets as well. So removing the usual foods won’t do much to deter these insects.
Our technicians do know what deters silverfish, however. And what’s more, we know how to remove them properly. That way, the infestation doesn’t come back, full-swing, in month or two. All of our technicians are knowledgeable and dependable. They have seen it all before and can handle a job of any size without any problems.
