What are silverfish?

These pests are really common Australia-wide. Their name comes from their fish-like appearance, thanks to their flat and scaly body. But, with fast legs and a voracious appetite, they may be damaging precious belongings before you even see them.

SILVERFISH BEHAVIOUR

They thrive in warmth, so they tend to stay around bathrooms,
kitchens, and laundries. Unfortunately, Silverfish are excellent at hiding and
will leave eggs in the tiniest cracks, which DIY treatments often miss.

PROBLEMS CAUSED BY SILVERFISH

Unlike other pests, silverfish aren’t disease carriers. Instead, the primary problem they cause is damage. They feed on starch and sugars, so spend time searching out and devouring items like books, photo albums, paintings, and even wallpaper.

Tips to prevent Silverfish

Silverfish near books

Once these pests infest the home in large numbers, they can be almost impossible to get rid of without professional help. Even if you’ve only seen one or two (or the damage they caused), we can help you get them under control. But there are some things you can do straight away to prevent them.

Clean small, dark areas

Check, vacuum, and thoroughly clean hidden areas like:

  • Cupboards and drawers
  • Pantries
  • Bookshelves
  • Linen cupboards

Repair and remove damp

Silverfish like moist environments, so you can:

  • Repair leaking taps and pipes
  • Install and maintain bathroom fans and exhausts
