TERMINIX CANADA’S SILVERFISH CONTROL

SILVERFISH CAUSE DESTRUCTION. GET THE PROTECTION IN NEWFOUNDLAND YOU NEED

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
environments.

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.

HOW DO SILVERFISH INFESTATIONS START?

When questioning how silverfish infestations start, the simple answer is moisture. Transported into homes and businesses unknowingly, silverfish continually search for moist areas inhabiting just about anywhere that is damp. Entering homes and businesses through door gaps and foundation cracks, silverfish infestations can start from simply leaving dirty dishes out too long.

Signs that a silverfish infestation has taken place include:

  • Holes in wallpaper, books, papers, or cardboard storage boxes
  • Fecal matter resembling small peppercorns in infested areas
  • Yellow stains on clothing, wallpaper, books, and papers
  • Spotting them! Silverfish can be spotted by the naked eye

GET RID OF SILVERFISH IN NEWFOUNDLAND WITH EFFECTIVE SILVERFISH CONTROL

If you’ve suffered a silverfish infestation in St. John’s or throughout the province, Terminix Canada’s quality silverfish control can help. Depend on our pest control specialists to apply baits and/or residual insecticide sprays or dusts based on the uniqueness of your situation.

Effective silverfish control requires ongoing maintenance. To reduce the chance of silverfish infestations occurring in your home or business, follow these steps:

  • Keep food sources contained
  • Regularly vacuum carpets, flooring, and furniture
  • Use dehumidifiers in damp areas
  • Install plastic sheeting on the ground in dirt crawlspaces
  • Apply graded landscaping to allow water to drain away from the home
  • Reduce harbourages
