Are Dekko Silverfish Paks safe for kitchen cabinets where dishes are stored?

My concern is does the silverfish die inside the pack once he has ingested the poison or would there be danger of the silverfish coming out of the pack and spreading the poison onto my dishes as he crawls around before hopefully dying.


The silverfish eat the bait on the Dekko Silverfish Pak and then they are free to move on. Dekko paks are not "traps" they are just bait. We recommend that you use insect glue boards in your cabinets if you are worried that the silverfish may eat the bait and then touch your dishes. Glue boards that are placed in cabinets directly into the travel path of insects are highly effective.
