What are Silverfish?

Have you ever wondered that when you start a book you found a little and white monster nestled in between the pages? That’s a silverfish. Commonly found in old boxes, drawers and bookshelves, these animals are known to be harmful pests. Silverfish feed on carbohydrates, especially sugars and starches. They have voracious feeding habits, oftentimes ruining papers, clothes and wallpaper.

Silverfish has been on the planet millions of years ago before dinosaurs. Meaning, bugs like them have survived 400 million years! They are small wingless insects, with fish-like look and appear to be whitish-gray in color. They’re benign and there have been no known evidence that they cause diseases or inject poison but then they’re considered pests in homes and businesses.

Their existence is sometimes undetected and homeowners often transport silverfish indoors unknowingly. Once inside, they find a safe dark and damp place where they can nestle and breed, and over time spread everywhere. These pests will enter houses through foundation cracks, torn screens, or gaps around doors. Leaving dirty dishes out in the open will also lure silverfish inside. They are not known to spread illnesses but they are capable of triggering allergic reactions in certain people and further damage properties. Their presence sometimes attracts carpet beetles and causes unease because of their strange appearance.

Extremely happy with the services provided, we had a very knowledgeable technician Sean came to attend to the possum issue in our townhouse, Sean found the openings where the possums came in on the roof right away and patched them up. When the previous pest control company failed to do. But being a two level building with a separated garage roof, it was very difficult to trap the possums still inside, but Andrew the boss and Sean kept trying and finally got the problem all solved. Friendly to talk to and easy to work with so Highly recommended.

Silverfish in Australian Households

Silverfish feed on anything that contains polysaccharides, like starches and dextrins in adhesives, which are found in book bindings. They are also known to feed on carpet, clothing, java, dandruff, glue, hair, some paints, paper, photographs, plaster, and sugar. Wallpapers aren’t an exception as well due to the paste. Overall, anything that has polysaccharide contents is known as food for these insects.

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.

As previously mentioned, they may not cause large damage, however, they are viewed as a hassle and can deem damage to any items.

Spotting an Infestation

Silverfish are known to be nocturnal and they move around so fast. Since they feed on starches and glue, most people become mindful that if they see openings and yellowish stains on their attire or closets, they understand that silverfish is the culprit.

As aforementioned, silverfish loves moist, dark and cold areas. They are found hiding in the nooks of the bathroom, kitchen cabinets, under the sink, attics and basements. Usually, whenever there are new buildings, large numbers may be found in which masonry is still damp. During a famine, a silverfish may even attack leatherware and synthetic fabrics. Silverfish can live for a year or more without eating.

Silverfish eggs generally take within 14 Days to 2 months to incubate. Indeed, the female and male carry out a fascinating habit that includes 3 phases and may last over 30 minutes. The female silverfish lay about 60 eggs and kept in small crevices. At the end, when the eggs hatch, the nymphs will cope on its way to move toward becoming adults following after three months to three decades.

Regardless of the fact that they are in charge of household damages, silverfish holds no record to transmit illnesses. Then again, they are sustenance for different insects like earwigs, home centipedes, and insects.

Controlling Silverfish Brooding

Cleaning the house and surrounding regions don’t completely eradicate silverfish. These pests are quite difficult to eliminate it requires assistance from pest control professionals. This is because no generic insecticides or pesticides can poison the silverfish brooding.

Here are some reasons why having a professional silverfish treatment is a good initiative:
