This is a tough insect to control. Silverfish reside in attics under the insulation, which is not readily accessible. Homes with wood shake roofs have larger populations of these pests. They can feed on wallpaper paste, book bindings, clothing, and even dandruff. They have been around for millions of years and will continue to survive, but they don’t have to live in your home.
Call a pest control expert to inspect your home and determine how bad the infestation is. Treatment may include insecticides, not just the removal of current insects. Larger infestations can be difficult to deal with, so a professional company may be your best option for treatment.
