Why Do I Have A Silverfish Problem In My Gaithersburg Home?

Silverfish are occasional invaders, which means, unlike other pests, they don't usually infest looking for food. Instead, they generally make their way inside because of the weather and available moisture. They don't bite or spread disease but can damage your personal belongings,

Circumstances that may cause silverfish to find refuge in your home include the environment, moisture, food, and shelter. But they can also get inside your home on packages and other items you may carry in from outside or storage areas. Even though they seek refuge inside, silverfish aren't a pest that usually lives inside; finding food is challenging.

If you are dealing with a silverfish infestation in your Gaithersburg home, contact Miche Pest Control for the necessary treatments to remove this pest.

Can Pest Control Get Rid Of Silverfish?

Silverfish are one of the easier pests to identify because of their unique and unsettling appearance. Silverfish are named after their body shape, color, and movements and are shiny silver with a tapered body. They also look like they are swimming as they run, with their three bristle-like tales moving side to side.

Although you might be able to identify them, you may not see them right away because they are nocturnal, so here are a few signs to look out for:

  • Droppings are usually found in areas that this pest gravitates to, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and basements. The droppings look like black peppercorns but smaller.
  • Staining can occur on different materials that attract silverfish, such as books, paper products, clothing, and wallpaper. This staining is usually yellow.
  • Shed skin is easy to miss because of the pest's light color, which can look like dust. However, you might see shed skin if you have a severe infestation.
  • Damage to belongings will occur when silverfish are feeding; you will likely see this damage on paper items, cardboard, clothing, and other fabrics.

Getting rid of silverfish is easy by trusting family-owned and operated Miche Pest Control for help. Contact us today for a free estimate and schedule an inspection for your home, which will help us determine your pest situation.

The Best Way To Keep Silverfish Out Of Your Gaithersburg Home

Once the professionals at Miche Pest Control have eliminated your silverfish infestation in Gaithersburg, you need to reduce the attractants that bring silverfish into your home. Here are ways to accomplish this:

Remove Conducive Conditions:

To make your property less attractive to these pests, you should reduce moisture by addressing any poor ventilation issues, repairing leaks, and using dehumidifiers in necessary areas of your home. It would help if you also reduced moisture outside by removing any organic debris, keeping gutters clear, and using crushed rocks to create a barrier between the soil and your home's foundation.

Eliminate Entry Points:

Inspect the exterior of your home for cracks in the foundation, spaces around windows and doors, missing or damaged screens, and gaps around utility lines. It also helps to check any packages or other items for insects before bringing them inside.

Remove Food Sources:

Get rid of clutter such as books and other paper products, keep food stored in air-tight containers, and remove excess plant matter from your yard. Also, plastic storage boxes with a fitting lid can help keep silverfish from getting inside.

Don't forget, the best way to get rid of silverfish is with assistance for professionals, so call us at Miche Pest Control today!
