How To Keep Silverfish Out Of Your Home


No homeowner likes to see silverfish lurking in their home. Silverfish love humid, warm places, and have a distinct appetite for any kind of paper. They will readily destroy everything from insurance papers to deeds, and the longer they are in your home, the more their population will expand. Silverfish are not picky, either. They do not care how clean or dirty a home might be, they just want to know if there is food and water available, and will always enter your home to check. 

Don’t let silverfish nibble you out of house and home. Miche Pest Control is your source for first-class home pest control, and we want to help you fight silverfish. Call us today in order to get silverfish out.

What Is A Silverfish?

What are silverfish? Silverfish are small insects covered in shiny scales somewhat like that on a fish. They have two large antennae up front and bristle tails. A silverfish bite is not something humans ever experience, and silverfish are not venomous, but they absolutely love carbohydrates like sugar and starch. They vastly prefer darkness, and tend to hide under things that give them complete cover. If something is moved and they are exposed, they will immediately run to find new cover. They are surprisingly fast runners for their size. They also prefer warm and humid, or moist environments.

Miche Pest Control knows all about silverfish, and how to handle them. If you find a silverfish infestation in your home, contact us. We are ready to serve you in getting silverfish, and all other pests for that matter, out of your house.

Why You Don't Want Silverfish Hanging Around Your Home

Silverfish are tough on paper goods. They are considered one of the most destructive house pests for household papers. The more of them there are, the more damage they cause. The ability of silverfish to cause damage in a home should not be understated. Though they are not aggressive toward humans, they go after paper with a vengeance. To silverfish, your papers are a buffet waiting to be explored. To make matters worse, silverfish can draw other pests to your home, because silverfish themselves look tasty to the other pests. 

Don’t stress about silverfish or any other pests. Miche Pest Control professionals know how to keep silverfish away, and we want to work with you to keep your home pest-free and happy. Call us today to allow us to let our history of excellent services become your silverfish-free future.

Four No-Sweat Prevention Tips To Keep Silverfish Out Of Your Home

Here are some easy things you can do to discourage silverfish from coming into your home:

  1. Eliminate clutter. Silverfish are attracted to clutter and like to hide in it.
  2. Seal stored food. Silverfish love carbohydrates, especially if you make it easy for them.
  3. Clean countertops. Silverfish will be drawn to dirty counters and their tasty bounty.
  4. Seal your house. Silverfish will exploit openings in houses to come and explore.

These are easy steps you can take to reduce the chances that silverfish will come for dinner, but nothing can guarantee that they won’t come anyway. If you find that silverfish have infested your home, contact Miche Pest Control to get silverfish pest control done right.
