What are Silverfish?

Have you pulled a book off the rack or even opened an old wooden box and just scream when these white unpleasant creatures dart off? We are referring to silverfish.

Homeowners often transport silverfish indoors unknowingly. When brought inside the house, cardboard boxes and plastic containers recently stored in infested areas can allow the pests to spread. The pests will enter homes through foundation cracks, torn screens, or gaps around doors. Leaving dirty dishes out in the open will also lure silverfish indoors.

Silverfish do not transmit diseases, but the pests can trigger allergies in some people and additional damage possessions. Their existence sometimes attracts carpet beetles and causes unease because of their strange appearance.

Knock-down pest control. These guys have to be the best on the market with competitive prices and fantastic attention to detail. I recently used them for both my house and my parents house for general pest control and I can honestly say I regret not using them sooner. The results speak for themselves very professional, on time and very thorough. No place for the bugs to hide with these guys!!

Silverfish in Australian Households

Silverfish consumes anything that contains polysaccharides, such as starches and dextrins in adhesives, which are found in book bindings. Both adults and larvae like to feed on carpet, clothing, coffee, dandruff, glue, hair, some paints, paper, photos, plaster, and sugar. Wallpapers are not an exception as well because these creatures feed on it due to the paste. Overall, anything that has polysaccharide contents is regarded as food for these pests.

Silverfish are cosmopolitan species, meaning to say, they are common and are found in Africa, the Americas, Europe, Australia, Asia and other parts of the Pacific. They live in moist areas that need a relative humidity between 75% and 95%. In urban areas, they can be found in basements and attics.

As previously mentioned, they may not cause massive damage, however, they are seen as an annoyance and can deem damage to any products.

Spotting an Infestation

These creepy crawlers are known to be nocturnal and they move around quickly. Since they feed on starches and paste, most people will be aware of their presence when they see holes and yellow stains on their clothes or wardrobes. They understand that silverfish is present.

As aforementioned, silverfish loves damp, dark and cold locations. They are found hiding in the nooks of the bathroom, kitchen cupboards, under the sink, attics and basements. Usually, whenever there are new buildings, large numbers may be found in which masonry is still damp. During a famine, a silverfish may even attack leatherware and synthetic fabrics. Silverfish can live for a year or more without eating.

Silverfish eggs generally take within 14 Days to two months to incubate. Indeed, the male and female carry out a fascinating habit that includes 3 phases and might last over 30 minutes. The female silverfish lay around 60 eggs and kept in tiny crevices. At the end, when the eggs hatch, the nymphs will deal on its way to move toward becoming adults after after three months to three years.

Though they are responsible for household damages, silverfish holds no record in transmitting diseases. On the other hand, they are food for other insects such as earwigs, house centipedes, and spiders.

Controlling Silverfish Brooding

Though you may somehow reduce their brooding when you clean the household, it can’t guarantee that silverfish infestation will be completely eradicated. It will still be a wise decision if specialist pest control services will be taken for silverfish treatment.

Here are some reasons why having a professional silverfish treatment is a good initiative:
