Pest Control for Silver Fish

[column place=”first” width=”six” custom_class=”” ] [dropcap]S[/dropcap]ilverfish are nocturnal insects typically 13–30 mm (0.5–1 in) long. Their abdomens taper at the end, giving them a fish-like appearance. The newly hatched are whitish, but develop a greyish hue and metallic shine as they get older. They have long antennae, and move in a wiggling motion that resembles the movement of a fish. This, coupled with their appearance and silvery scales, influences their common name.

Silverfish are considered household pests, due to their consumption and destruction of property.

Treatment includes:

  • Dust ceilings.
  • Apply liquid spray to accessible areas in non-food cupboards.
  • Apply aerosol spray in and around cupboards or infected areas.

Eat a wide variety of foods, including glue, wallpaper paste, book bindings, paper, photographs, starch in clothing, cotton, linen, rayon fabrics, wheat flour, cereals, dried meats, leather and even dead insects. Silverfish often live in damp, cool places.
