How To Get Rid of Silverfish

Silverfish are serpentine insects that require damp and humid conditions and thrive in kitchens, laundry rooms, bathrooms and other dark, isolated areas. Fixing leaks in pipe work, improving ventilation and using dehumidifiers can help discourage silverfish.

Silverfish feed on:

  • Starch
  • Cellulose
  • Sugar

They can be found in a variety of common items in households and businesses such as books, wallpaper, paintings, fabrics, carpets, coffee, sugar, pasta and other food debris.

Deny silverfish sustenance by keeping dust and debris to a minimum, vacuum rarely disturbed areas in the home and store food in containers with tightly sealed lids.

Home DIY products such as sprays can help control silverfish populations but large or repeated infestations will require professional treatment. Rentokil offers experienced technicians and expert, targeted solutions catered to your needs.
