What are Silverfish?
Silverfish are small, wingless insects that are commonly found in homes and buildings. They have a silvery-gray appearance and can grow between ½-1 inch in length. They are typically nocturnal and are drawn to areas with high moisture, such as basements, kitchens, and bathrooms. Silverfish feed on starchy materials such as paper, glue and clothing fibers. While they do not pose a direct threat to humans, their presence can be a nuisance and cause damage to belongings.
Threats of Silverfish Infestations
While silverfish may seem harmless, they can cause serious damage to your property. They are known for their diet of starchy materials such as paper, glue and fabrics. This means that they can chew through important documents, books, wallpaper and clothing if left unchecked. Silverfish can contaminate food sources and cause allergic reactions in individuals with sensitivities.
Signs of Silverfish Infestations
Silverfish can be difficult to spot as they are primarily active at night. Some signs may indicate an infestation including:
- Seeing silverfish crawling or running on the floor or walls
- Finding yellow stains or small holes in paper or clothing
- Noticing damaged books, wallpaper, or other starchy materials
- Finding silverfish scales or shed skin in dark, damp areas
If you notice any of these signs – it is important to contact a professional pest control service for thorough inspection and treatment.
Preventing Tips for Silverfish Infestations
There are a few steps you can take to prevent silverfish infestations in your home or business:
- Reduce humidity levels by using dehumidifiers or fixing any leaks
- Seal cracks and crevices around windows, doors, and pipes
- Store food in airtight containers
- Keep storage areas clean and clutter free
- Regularly vacuum carpets and rugs
By taking these preventative measures, you can greatly reduce the risk of silverfish infestations on your property.
