Touring thousands of homes over the years, no pest problem scares our team of pest control specialists. Encountering every pest infestation imaginable, depend on Terminix Canada’s Newfoundland branch for effective silverfish control.
Living in damp and moist spaces, silverfish are destructive feeders and can inhabit multiple places in your home including your attic,
basement, garage, and shed. Given their love of paper, they can also inhabit businesses, especially office, storage facility, and library
Silverfish don’t bite humans but bite the surface of food sources that typically include the edges of book pages, bookbindings, wallpaper
glue, and even clothing. Always in search of food sources high in sugars and starch, these fast, wingless insects are nocturnal and can
survive for weeks without food or water. Preferring humid environments, silverfish can cause significant amounts of damage if an infestation grows large enough.
