Silverfish Bugs - The Problem & The Solution

Silverfish are likely not one of the first pests that spring to mind when you think of insects and rodents that might cause a problem in your home. Although it does not have the name recognition or cause the same number of infestations as insects such as roaches and ants, Silverfish are actually as annoying as any pest. There are some things that make the Silverfish bug worse overall than these more common nuisances.

Perhaps the worst thing about these pests is the fact that their diet consists mainly of sugars and starches. In fact, their Latin name is Lepisma Saccharina, which indicates their love of sugary foods. This becomes a major problem when you realize that most of the glues and other bindings used in things such as the manufacture of books are indistinguishable to the insects. This means that they will eat their way through your books and other possessions if they are not stopped in their tracks.

Here at Do My Own Pest Control you are sure to find everything you will need for Silverfish extermination, ensuring the safety of your personal belongings by making sure they can’t eat through your things. We carry all of the approved professional strength Silverfish bait, traps, and spray products that will put a stop to these insects well before any damage is done. Below are a few tips on how to kill Silverfish.

How To Get Rid Of Silverfish

•    Know Where They Hide

This is important because the good Silverfish elimination relies on treating them at the source of the infestation. This is almost always near whatever food source they are using to survive. Knowing that they eat non-traditional things such as book bindings, and even some clothing materials, you may need to look for them and treat the infestation in areas such as closets and book cases.

•    Use The Right Pesticide

It’s true that pretty much any pesticide will work for Silverfish control. However, you don’t want to use something that is incredibly strong to get rid of them right off the bat, as their infestations usually respond well to less powerful chemicals. They can even be killed quite effectively by using natural alternatives to pesticides such as Diatomaceous Earth or Boric Acid. These products are ideal for use in areas such as closets if you do not want your clothes to smell of pesticides or be contaminated with harsh chemicals.

•    Silverfish Traps & Baits Work Well

If you have a hard time locating the source or center of the infestation, you should consider using bait or traps to kill Silverfish bugs. This is guaranteed to work just as well as topical pesticides because these insects are completely driven by their desire to feed constantly.

Any bait that is formulated to attract other sugar seeking insects such as ants will work well against silverfish as well. One primary advantage of using Silverfish traps and baits is that it is a “set it and forget it” approach to Silverfish control, and you are not likely to need a second application, provided the infestation is reasonably small.
