What are Silverfish?

Have you ever pulled a book off the shelf or even opened an old wooden box just to scream when these white creepy creatures dart off? Well, we’re talking about silverfish.

Silverfish have been on the ground hundreds of thousands of years in the past before dinosaurs. Meaning, insects like them have lived for 400 million years! They are small wingless bugs, with the fish-like look and are whitish-grey in colour. They are harmless and there’d been no recognised proof that they cause diseases or introduce poison, however, they are considered pests in homes and businesses.

These creepy crawlers are cosmopolitan species found in America, Australia, Africa, Eurasia and other sections of the Pacific. They love to nestle moist areas where temperature is favourable, relatively humid between 75% and 95%. In urban areas specifically families, they are commonly found in attics, basements, bathtubs, sinks, kitchens, old books, and showers.

We have been getting the pest control done from Andrew and team for the last 5-6 years....very professional and prompt service. They have even provided free call back service with a smile, whenever requested....Great job guys.... Keep it up!!

Silverfish in Australian Households

Silverfish absorbs anything that contains polysaccharides, like starches and dextrins in adhesives, which are found in book bindings. Both adults and larvae like to feed on carpeting, clothing, java, dandruff, glue, hair, some paints, paper, photographs, plaster, and sugar. Wallpapers are not an exception as well because these creatures feed on it due to the paste. Overall, anything that’s polysaccharide contents is considered food for these pests.

These house insects are often found in dark and sheltered regions in the home. If not, they are likely undisturbed in bookshelves, cupboards, closets and secluded locations.

They nestle in dark and sheltered areas in the household. If not, they’re probably undiscovered in bookshelves, cupboards, closets and secluded places. They may not inflict any harm but they are considered a nuisance and may be destructive to any possessions.

Spotting an Infestation

Silverfish are categorised as nocturnal pests and they move around so quickly. Since they voraciously consume on starch-rich items and paste, most people can easily identify their presence because they leave stains on clothes and wardrobes.

As aforementioned, silverfish loves damp, dark and cold areas. So, it is better to inspect the bathroomkitchen closets, under the sink, attics and basements. Usually, when there are new buildings, large numbers may be found in which masonry is still damp.

Silverfish eggs usually take within two weeks to two months to hatch. Actually, the male and female carryout an interesting ritual which involves 3 phases and may last over 30 minutes. The female silverfish lay about 60 eggs and deposited in little crevices. Finally, when the eggs hatch, the nymphs will operate on its way to become adults after three months to three decades.

Though they are responsible for household damages, silverfish holds no record in transmitting diseases. On the other hand, they’re food for other insects like earwigs, home centipedes, and spiders.

Controlling Silverfish Brooding

Cleaning the house does not necessarily guarantee to lessen the number of silverfish. Therefore, most homeowners seek advice to professional pest management services to implement a customised treatment focused on silverfish eradication.
