SILVERFISH

Don’t let the name fool you; silverfish aren’t fish-like but take their name from the pest’s silvery scales that are metallic in appearance. Primitive, wingless insects that are 1/2 to one inch long when fully grown, they are flat and shaped like a carrot. Silverfish also feature three extended bristles on the rear of their body.

Very fast, silverfish are destructive feeders and often cause commercial or residential damage without you noticing. These creepy looking pests possess a love of paper and often eat the edges of book pages, bookbindings, and wallpaper glue. They even eat clothing too. If you have damp or moist storage boxes in your home attic, basement, garage or shed, silverfish are more than likely to inhabit these spaces. Given their love of paper, silverfish also commonly infest commercial spaces like offices, storage facilities, and libraries too. Fear not, silverfish control from Terminix Canada’s Newfoundland branch can remove these meddlesome bugs for good.


ORDER/FAMILY

Thysanura/Lepismatidae

SCIENTIFIC NAME

Lepisma saccharina

BIOLOGY

The female silverfish lays one to three eggs per day in concealed crevices or beneath objects. These will hatch in about 43 days. Young silverfish look exactly like the adults, except smaller. These insects have longevity, commonly living a minimum of three years.

BEHAVIOUR

Silverfish can be found anywhere throughout a structure. In other words, everywhere from the basement to individual floors, the attic to roof shingles. They readily feed on books, cloth, and sometimes dried meats or dead insects.

HOW TO GET RID OF SILVERFISH

Importantly, it’s vital to reduce any areas of concentrated moisture for effective silverfish control. Likewise, lowering the temperature and removing infested items helps eliminate localized silverfish infestations. Sanitation is always helpful, however it may not greatly reduce the silverfish infestation. Silverfish control is easily accomplished with thorough applications of baits and/or residual insecticide sprays or dusts. Visit our silverfish control page for more information about how Terminix Canada can permanently remove silverfish from your home.

I called these guys at about 7pm on a Sunday night and by 11pm the ant nest in the wall of my house was dead and no ants have been seen since. I didn't meet the tech personally but he was very professional on the phone and easy to deal with.
