Silverfish Elimination & Control
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.
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.
