Planning for Treatment

The report created on the basis of the inspection is used to create a well-defined and budget-friendly silverfish treatment method for your issue. The plan is created keeping in mind the species and the level of infestation. It also depends on the factors of infestation and the budget of the individual.

The duration, methods, and materials used for the treatment are all mentioned within the report. The plan is then communicated to the customers and after it is approved, they are passed on for implementation. In case of high infestation levels, follow-up treatments are also included in the plan if needed.

Future Prevention Tips

The professionals also provide tips and precaution methods to avoid any kind of future infestation. You can, however, use some strategies to keep your property safe from any type of silverfish infestation.

  • Keep the food products in air-tight containers. Do not leave them open on the kitchen platform.
  • Close or repair any water sources that may cause dampness. Fish tanks, plumbing leaks, water-shedding near the property, and more can increase the humidity in your property.
  • Clear any form of clutter from your property as silverfish often find safe hiding places behind piles of debris, clothes, and papers.
  • Clean and sanitise your floors and walls regularly. Remove and dispose of the garbage from your property regularly. 
  • You can also consider installing a dehumidifier to minimise the dampness within your property.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can pest control professionals eradicate silverfish?

If you have problems with silverfish, spray residual pesticides around your home. Spray a thin line along the perimeter of your home to stop silverfish from moving.

Spraying exterior walls with Intice Perimeter 10 will prevent silverfish from entering a building. Spraying the attic with Intice Perimeter 10 is also possible. A pest management specialist should manage this type of silverfish pest management.

Tom’s Pest Control Canberra will help you develop a strategy to control silverfish infestations. First, in moist basements, we use dehumidifiers. Then, place plastic sheets on dirt crawl areas or roof ridge vents to let the damp air in.

Is silverfish harmful to pets and people?

Silverfish are not infectious and do not bite humans or animals. They also don’t spread diseases. If they are allowed to get in from the outside, however, they can spread diseases and contaminate food.

Silverfish love to live in damp areas so that a bed could make a great environment. Consider that your bed is heated by your body and has dark areas between the pillows and mattress. If that is the case, silverfish could use it for breeding quickly.

They can cause havoc in your home. Because they eat insects, they can also eat your belongings. The feces can also leave stains. But they are not harmful and won’t cause any disease. Pets can eat silverfish, but it should not be encouraged.

What are the signs of a silverfish infestation?

The presence of live silverfish first detects silverfish infestations. These tiny, flexible, and slippery insects can be found in various colours, from brown-grey to blue-silver. They are teardrop-shaped insects with a body that wriggles forwards and backwards, much like a fish swimming.

Small silverfish droppings can be mistaken for household dust or objects. If they return to the surface after being swept once, this is an indication that there is a problem.

Silverfish experience skin loss throughout their lives. Silverfish’s outer shells indicate infestation. They are fragile, small, and translucent. While you won’t be able to see the silverfish moulting their skins on the surface, you can observe the golden dust they leave behind. These yellow stains can be found on clothes, books, paper, cardboard boxes, and paper.

How can you keep silverfish away from your home or business?

Silverfish infestations can be prevented by taking preventative measures. Avoid situations that encourage silverfish reproduction. They will keep what they need to survive and love close by.

Silverfish need water, food, and shelter. These things are essential for their survival. These are all ways to protect your business and home from silverfish infestation.

All pantry items should be kept in sealed containers that contain sugar or starch. This will help keep them dry and prevent silverfish from entering your pantry.

  • Regularly vacuum and sweep your home. Silverfish will eat dust-related particles.
  • Garments should always be dried. However, don’t dry clothes you don’t wear very often.
  • Don’t discard leftovers. These insects may eat leftovers from a dinner party.
  • Keep silverfish and other insects out of cracks in walls and floors. This will prevent them from hiding or laying eggs.
What type of property damage can silverfish cause?

Silverfish can cause serious damage to historical artifacts, paper records, and other papers. Silverfish can also cause significant damage to buildings and homes. This might not seem to be a problem if museums are empty. But unfortunately, this makes it easier for silverfish and other insects to reproduce and thrive in unattended areas.

Silverfish are fond of sweet and starchy foods and will eat many household products. There are many materials that bugs can find sugars and starches in, including wallpaper, books, paintings, wallpapers, photographs, and wallpaper.

These insects love protein-rich foods such as cereals and dried meat. These insects also love sugar and starches. In addition, these bugs love grains, cereals, pet food, and other foods.
