What are Silverfish?

Have you ever pulled a book off the shelf or even opened an old wooden box just to shout when these white creepy creatures dart off? Well, we’re talking about silverfish.

Homeowners often transport silverfish indoors unknowingly. When brought inside the home, cardboard boxes and plastic containers recently stored in infested areas can make it possible for the pests to spread. The pests will enter houses through foundation cracks, torn screens, or openings around doors. Leaving dirty dishes out in the open will also lure silverfish indoors.

These insects are cosmopolitan species And are observed in America, Australia, Africa, Eurasia and unique parts of the Pacific. They prefer to nest in moist areas where temperature is beneficial, incredibly humid among 75% and 95%. In urban areas particularly households, they are usually observed in attics, basements, bathtubs, sinks, kitchens, old books, and showers.

Real Estate Property Manager. Prior to the introduction I had used other Company's who did not offer the same professional service I attained from Knockdown Pest Control. No job was too small or too big and they were always contactable and were able to attend to the job quickly. The quality of their service and the work performed is second to none. I have used the Company for my own family needs as well and I will never again use another Company for my Pest Control needs.

Silverfish in Australian Households

Silverfish consumes anything that contains polysaccharides, such as starches and dextrins in adhesives, which are found in book bindings. Apart from that, they feed on carpeting, clothing, coffee, dandruff, glue, hair, some paints, paper, photos, plaster, and sugar. Wallpapers are not an exception as well as these creatures feed on it because of the glue. Overall, anything that has polysaccharide contents are considered food for these pests.

Silverfish are cosmopolitan species, meaning to say, they are common and are found in Africa, the Americas, Europe, Australia, Asia and other parts of the Pacific. They live in moist areas that need a relative humidity between 75% and 95%. In urban areas, they can be found in basements and attics.

They nestle in dark and sheltered areas in the household. Otherwise, they are likely undisturbed in bookshelves, cupboards, closets and secluded places. They may not inflict any harm but they are considered a nuisance and may be destructive to any possessions.

Spotting an Infestation

These creepy crawlers are known to be nocturnal and they move around fast. Since they feed on starches and paste, most individuals will be aware of their existence when they see holes and yellow stains on their clothes or wardrobes. They understand that silverfish is present.

As aforementioned, silverfish loves moist, dark and cold locations. They’re found hiding in the nooks of the bathroom, kitchen cupboards, under the sink, attics and basements. Usually, whenever there are new buildings, large numbers could be found in which masonry is still damp. During a famine, a silverfish may even attack leatherware and synthetic fabrics. Silverfish can live for a year or more without eating.

It takes 2 weeks to two months for silverfish eggs to hatch. Actually, the adult male and female carryout an interesting mating ritual which involves 3 phases that last over half an hour. The female silverfish is capable of laying out 60 eggs and deposited in little crevices. When these eggs hatch, the nymphs will flourish to grow into adults between 3 months to 3 decades.

Regardless of the fact that they are in charge of household damages, silverfish holds no record to transmit illnesses. Then again, they are sustenance for different insects like earwigs, home centipedes, and insects.

Controlling Silverfish Brooding

Cleaning the house does not necessarily guarantee to lessen the number of silverfish. Therefore, most homeowners seek advice to professional pest management services to implement a customised treatment focused on silverfish eradication.

Here are some reasons why using a professional silverfish treatment is a good initiative:

If you suspect a silverfish infestation on the comfort of your home, it’s far better to request the support of a certified pest control expert. Here at Knock Down Pest Control, we promise free inspection offer and we are able to perceive the best remedy tailor-fit to your requirement or challenge.
