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.

Signs of a silverfish infestation include feeding marks which can be holes, surface etchings, and notches on items they eat. Infested objects may also have yellow urine stains, feces, or scales. They are often seen in areas with moisture, ceiling soffits, and basements.
Although these insects look threatening, they do not bite or spread diseases. They can cause damage to fabric items, books, clothing, and other paper or cloth objects. They can also eat protein-rich foods, which will contaminate the foods you eat.
Silverfish prefer moist areas, so you can start by getting a dehumidifier for areas where they may live inside your home. If you have a small infestation, it is most likely localized, but if it is large, you will need to focus on treatment indoors and outside.

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.
