Silverfish Information

Like so many other insects, silverfish are nocturnal and during the day hide in cracks and crevices, or amongst cardboard and paper. They like clutter, and will feed on paper (including wallpaper and books), fabrics and clothing, and almost anything containing starches or glues.

Silverfish like high humidity or damp as they need moisture to survive. They prefer locations that are rarely disturbed such as roof voids, wardrobes and stored cartons. For these reasons the full extent of infestations may often go undetected.


Targeted Silverfish Treatments

We have a range of specific treatments using registered products. Our professional technicians firstly identify affected areas; and will then recommend the most suitable treatment.
