Silverfish

 

Silverfish: These destructive insects can damage several household items. Silverfish generally prefer products high in sugar, starch, protein, wheat and flour. They can also damage wallpaper, paper that has been glued and book bindings but they don’t stop there, they also feed off of starch in clothing and rayon fabrics. It is uncommon to see silverfish during the day as they are nocturnal and seek moisture in damp cool places such as bathroom and kitchen cupboards, sinks, baths, behind skirtings, in book cases and throughout wardrobe shelving. Silverfish are generally transported into the home through infested boxes or other paper that have come from an infested site.

 

Breeding Facts: As mentioned above silverfish require moisture they tend to hide away and this is where they will breed, large numbers of silverfish can also be found on construction sites where the masonry is still damp. They develop slowly under household conditions and can survive for several months without food. True to their name silverfish are covered with glistening silver scales. A fully developed silverfish is around 2cm long.

 

What you can do: Regular inspection of the common infestation areas listed above is highly recommended. It is important to vacuum areas behind and underneath heavy furniture pieces and where carpet extends into walk in wardrobes. When placing winter blankets and bed linen into storage after winter it is suggested that you use plastic or vacuum sealed bags and moth balls are also a good deterrent. If you have a piano it is recommended that you hang moth balls within cloth bags inside the piano as a preventative measure.

 

What Protector Pest Control can do: Using a licenced technician to eradicate pest’s means that you have access to chemicals that are not available to the public. Silverfish treatments are completed using a log lasting residual insecticide delivered via a fogging machine. IT is necessary to vacate the premises for 2 hours after the treatment has been completed. Once the 2 hour period has finished you may re-enter the premises as usual. It is recommended that no open food containers, dishes or baby bottles etc. be left in the open during treatment as a precaution however all treatments are extremely safe for you and your family.
