SWIMMING WITH SILVERFISH
Silverfish thrive in damp areas like bathrooms and kitchens, as well as any dark and isolated spaces within your home. It’s common to find the odd silverfish in uninhabited areas of your home, but if left untreated it can soon lead to infestation in the kitchen, bathrooms as they seek food. However, they hate the smell of Citrus.
DEALING WITH SILVERFISH
Some say Silverfish roamed the earth with the Dinosaurs, which might make you think they are hard to get rid of. Generally, however, a combination of insecticidal treatment, with effective management to any damp problems, which attract the Silverfish, will result in total eradication of a silverfish infestation. Your friendly household spider will also keep them at bay.
HOW TO IDENTIFY
A silverfish is a small, wingless insect in the order Zygentoma. Its common name derives from the animal’s silvery light grey color, combined with the fish-like appearance of its movements.
