Have You Noticed More Silverfish Coming Out Of Your Pipes?
Silverfish lurk. What’s worse than that is their actual movement. Seeing these multi-legged bugs working their way across your floors can be almost startling, especially when you’re not used to them. If you are, you have a problem and you should call a professional pest control service.
Silverfish do not bite, cause significant damage or spread any kind of disease. This makes them pretty harmless, but they are downright creepy. They snack on paper, sugar, glue, cereal boxes, dry goods, shampoos, and dead skin cells. They have been known to pop out of unopened food packages. At their most destructive, they’ll nibble at your clothes. They spend their time under your sinks, in bathtubs and drawers, in the kitchen and basement, where there’s piping and in cold, damp dark places. They move quickly and mostly in the dark. Their bodies are odd, shaped like carrots and their antennae fly everywhere.
These annoyances have a scaly exterior and, when they slide across the floor, it looks like they’re swimming. They’ve been around long before man. They are resilient, using millions of years on earth to develop exceptional survival skills. That’s where the real problem comes in. They reproduce rapidly – laying up to two dozen eggs a day depending on the species – and can quickly infest your surroundings.
What makes silverfish difficult to get rid of is their adaptability. It’s important to catch silverfish early before they get a foothold in your home or business. Unfortunately, finding them can be difficult because they’re nocturnal creatures. You may come across their tiny feces that could be mistaken for pepper. They know how to hide and can glide easily under the slimmest crack or crevice. Most silverfish infestations are not caught until they’re everywhere.
Green Home Pest Control has been tackling silverfish throughout Phoenix for a long time. Our consultation has been of value to many. We advise you on the many ways to deal with these pests, such as doing your best to control humidity and moisture, the importance of caulking and limiting potential feeding sites. We can talk about how cinnamon, under the right circumstances, can send silverfish running. Unfortunately, preventative measures are just that, preventative. Even the so-called best over-the-counter products cannot deal with an already-existing infestation, especially when those products do not kill eggs.
