    What Are Silverfish?

    Silverfish are nocturnal insects thriving in high-humidity environments which are warm, dark and damp. As they are wingless, silverfish bugs travel along surfaces searching for food, such as paper, wet clothing, book bindings and wallpaper. Subsequently, an active silverfish problem can result in costly property damage and cause allergic reactions in some adults and children.


    How To Get Rid Of Silverfish

    When it comes to silverfish, there are two main methods of treatment – insecticides and traps.


    • Insecticides – As proficient pest controllers, we have access to professional-grade insecticides that are much more effective than any DIY, over-the-counter alternatives. Insecticides are the most effective method for controlling silverfish, and they can be applied in a range of ways, including fogging, spraying, targeting and bombs. Our expert technician will determine the most appropriate application method during your free survey.
    • Traps – Alternatively, traps are a brilliant silverfish pest control method for situations when insecticides cannot be used safely. Although they may take longer to work, traps are still an effective method for eradicating a silverfish infestation. A combination of traps and insecticides is often the best action plan to remove all stages of silverfish life.

    Identifying a Silverfish Infestation

    Due to their small size and incredible hiding abilities, silverfish are elusive and difficult to spot. However, here are some telltale signs to look out for:


    • Droppings – Silverfish leave their trace wherever they go in the form of droppings. Look out for small, black, peppercorn-shaped droppings in humid, hidden areas around your property.
    • Shed Skin – Adult silverfish shed their scaley skin numerous times throughout their lives, and this moulting can trigger people’s allergies. Check your home for small, transparent shells, as this is a definite sign of silverfish in your house.
    • Stains – Silverfish often leave small yellow-coloured marks on your clothing, floors, books and wallpaper as they move around.
    • Damage – Finding small holes in textiles, clothes and paper items clearly indicates a pest problem.


    The signs of silverfish are sometimes confused with those left behind by cockroaches in London and carpet moths. Fortunately, during your free site survey, we can accurately distinguish which pests are causing you problems. Book your visit by calling our expert team at 0204 566 5522
