The Silverfish

Silverfish are scary looking yet tiny nuisance pests.  They are silver-metallic in color, long and carrot-shaped.  They also have antennae as long as their bodies. They can move rather very quickly.  They are nuisance pests because they do not really spread diseases nor do they cause physical harm to humans.  They do psychological harm though. That is because they can destroy things that we may hold dear, like old books, photos, clothing, wallpaper, and cardboard.  They also eat fried foods in our kitchens.


Silverfish are attracted to places under the sink areas in your kitchen or bathroom. They like high humidity areas and live where there is a lot of moisture.  They are nocturnal, meaning they prefer to look for food at night and stay in dark places during the day.    They may also live on the walls and closets.

How To Get Rid Of Silverfish

You can use sticky traps made of sticky glue and a cardboard base can be effective and you might be able to catch a few of them.  

Diminish their food source.  Keep starchy foods in airtight containers where they can not touch them.  Use dehumidifiers in damp places. Vacuum your carpets, flooring, and upholstery.  Keep your gutters clean. Remove clutter as silverfish love hiding in old newspapers, magazines, and books.

Use dehumidifiers to remove the humid air in your rooms where silverfish are seen.  This is good, especially in the bathrooms. Use Diatomaceous Earth, a white, crumbly powder consisting of fossilized remains of diatoms.  Sprinkle this around places where you have seen silverfish. Since silverfish are nocturnal, it is best to apply this in the evening.

Make sure that areas like the ones under the sink in the kitchen and bathrooms are well ventilated. Seal openings like cracks on the wall or floors to prevent the possible entry of the silverfish.

In case these still would not work, then call in the professionals.  Go-Forth Pest Control can handle any silverfish problems you may have.
