Silverfish

More than just a nuisance in homes, Silverfish are known for their destructive feeding habits and can cause a serious problem in large numbers – damaging books, photographs, paintings, plaster and other household items containing starch or cellulose.

Silverfish survive in most environments, but thrive in conditions of high humidity and can often be found in dark, damp areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, basements and attics.

Characterised by a silvery-blue colour, tiny scales and wiggling movements resembling that of a fish – these pest are also commonly known as fish moths or carpet sharks.

Silverfish treatment

A Silverfish infestation requires treatment of both adult Silverfish and their harbourage.

Our highly trained Service Technicians will be able to assess the situation and advise on the most effective treatments to manage the infestation in your home or business.
