Silverfish are a silent killer for homes all across Canada. These pests thrive in damp environments and there is nowhere better to find a suitable living space than White Rock. With a damp climate, heritage homes and a massive water feature, this community is prime real estate for insects. If these slithering pests are terrorizing your home or business, call Toodaloo to ditch the pests.
When it comes to insect infestations, there really isn’t any redeeming quality – some are just worse than others. Silverfish are nocturnal, quiet and tend to keep to themselves, so what can be so bad about these pests? Unlike other pests, silverfish do not thrive off of blood meals and do not need average food sources to survive. These particular pests make their meals out of a broad list of organic materials. Sure, kitchen crumbs are on the menu but so is cardboard, paper, book bindings, natural adhesives and any cellulose-based materials. This broad diet might make it easy for these pests to track down a meal but it opens the door for a boatload of damage.
The majority of homes in the White Rock area are crawling with silverfish, whether you know it or not! Sometimes, the only way to identify an infestation is through the damage that you are finding around your space. You might be able to spot the odd insect slithering across floor, but to properly get rid of silverfish, you need to approach them at every stage of their life cycle. Eggs and adolescent pests hide out in cracks and crevices, so the right treatment technique is key.
Just because you don’t see a silverfish for a day or two does not mean that you’ve gotten rid of them. Pack away your boric acid solutions and ineffective silverfish traps and opt for professional silverfish control. In addition to treating your infestation, our specialists help clients prevent silverfish from coming back. Something as basic as leaky pipes can encourage these pests to hunker down, but treating high humidity areas and addressing cracks and crevices keeps these pests gone!
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.
