Guaranteed, convenient silverfish treatments from certified technicians. More than just a nuisance in homes, Silverfish are known for their destructive feeding habits and can cause a serious problem in large numbers – damaging books, photographs, paintings, plaster and other household items containing starch or cellulose.

Silverfish survive in most environments, but thrive in conditions of high humidity and can often be found in dark, damp areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and attics.

Characterized by a silvery-blue color, tiny scales and wiggling movements resembling that of a fish – these pests are also commonly known as fish moths or carpet sharks.

How To Get Rid of Silverfish

Silverfish are serpentine insects that require damp and humid conditions and thrive in kitchens, laundry rooms, bathrooms, and other dark, isolated areas. Fixing leaks in pipework, improving ventilation and using dehumidifiers can help discourage silverfish.

Silverfish feed on:

Starch

Cellulose

Sugar

They can be found in a variety of common items in households and businesses such as books, wallpaper, paintings, fabrics, carpets, coffee, sugar, pasta, and other food debris.

Deny silverfish sustenance by keeping dust and debris to a minimum, vacuum rarely disturbed areas in the home and store food in containers with tightly sealed lids.

Home DIY products such as sprays can help control silverfish populations but large or repeated infestations will require professional treatment. Ecopoise offers experienced technicians and expert, targeted solutions catered to your needs.
