We use internal liquid spray and dusting application to roof voids and wall cavities in severe cases.
Silverish often feed on books, leather, coffee, carpet, sugar, paper, photos, cosmetics and starches that are found around our homes. Silverfish are attracted by damp areas and clothing. Silverfish are found throughout most of a home but thrive in kitchens, garages, roof voids, wall cavities, basements, wardrobes and inside boxed containers.
They are nocturnal animals and rarely travel during the daytime. They also move in a fast running, quick manner, making them hard for homeowners to spot. Silverfish reproduction is slow the female can lay no more than 60 eggs at once, and on average lays 100 eggs per lifetime.
Due to their inability to climb smooth surfaces they are often located in baths and basins due to them being trapped. Silverfish are often introduced to our homes by purchasing paper towels, toilet paper and similar products or purchasing second hand furniture and cloths.
What they lack in reproductive efficiency, they make up in longevity. Silverfish can live for up to 4 years and can survive for several weeks without water, and for a whole year without food. They also feed on dead or injured insects.
Pest Management around your home is a team effort. Here at LessPest we aim for you and your family to have Less Pest’s through More Control.
We use high-quality products that are environmentally friendly towards your family and pets.We do not overbook our technicians on the day, so time can be taken to listen to your pest concerns. The technician then has time to detect where pests maybe harbouring and apply the best application and pest management plan for your home.
Although Silverfish are not harmful to humans & do not carry disease, they can do large amounts of damage to clothing, curtains, carpet and paperwork. Protect your treasured memories, documents, and fashion wardrobe today. To maximise the effectiveness of treatment, we recommend customers remove stored items such as linen from cupboards, open boxes where stored paperwork might have been sitting and wardrobe areas are cleared.
Just remember silverfish think your home is just as cosy as you do. When thinking of keeping silverfish away, think a minimalistic approach to your home.
