Silverfish live in Your Home ...
 
     
 
Habitat: Silverfish habit underused areas, such as roof spaces, storage rooms, basements, wall cavities, and bookcases but may roam widely throughout a building. Silverfish prefer to live in dark quiet places and are most active during the still of night.
Sinks, toilets & bathtubs: People often find silverfish in their home in sinks, toilets and bathtubs because they have fallen in and become trapped while seeking moisture.
Infestations: Silverfish infestations can start when their eggs, nymphs (young ones), or adults are brought into the home in infested cardboard boxes, cartons, furniture or similar items.
 
     
 
Pest Control for Silverfish
 
     
 
Inspection: We recommended a thorough inspection first be carried out by the pest control professional to determine likely and observed habitat locations, the extent of the infestation and control methods neccessary.
Treatment: The roof void and wall cavities should be treated with a synthetic pyrethroid dust using specialised "dust blower" equipment. Other areas, such as basements, storage rooms and the like can be treated with a synthetic pyrethroid spray.
Cost: A professional pest control service for silverfish control should cost around $150 to $250 inc GST, where the safer synthetic pyrethroid insecticides are used.
