What are Silverfish?
Silverfish (Lepisma saccharina) are small wingless insects, their name comes from their appearance. They are fish shaped, a silvery grey colour, have three tails and are up to 20mm in length, and they wiggle as they move.
Silverfish prefer dark and damp places. This means you are more likely to find them in the cellar, in the bathroom, in the garage or anywhere there is moisture and food.
Their diet consists mainly of carbohydrates such as sugar or starches. Foods can include glue, book bindings, plaster, some paints, paper, photos, sugar, coffee, hair, carpet, clothing and dandruff. They may even eat cotton, linen and silk.
Although Silverfish are harmless, they are considered a household pest due to their consumption and destruction of property.
If your home has silverfish you might not even be aware of them as they are nocturnal and they hide as soon as the light is turned on.
So if you don’t like the idea of insects in your food cupboards or squashing them when you go bear footed to the bathroom at night, then give us a call and we can deal with the problem quickly and efficiently.
