Save Your Wardrobe Becoming Victim To Hungry Silverfish
Silverfish are eight-legged insects that have scales on their bodies that allow them to move in a quick, curving manner that resembles that of a fish. They have a silver or grey colouring, but some also brownish.
Silverfish live outdoors in damp, rocky or mouldy areas, but easily thrive indoors in humid rooms such as bathrooms and are considered urban pests. Silverfish can climb rougher surfaces, but not usually slippery surfaces and, as a result, they are sometimes found trapped in sinks and bathtubs.
Silverfish can ruin books and clothing in the right situation but DON’T PANIC they do not transmit disease.
In homes, silverfish tend to live behind skirting boards around floors, or near plumbing and pipes in small cracks. Besides bathrooms, and sometimes kitchens or closets, silverfish can be found in crawlspaces and attics. Their eggs are often found in boxes of old clothing and books as silverfish eat the starch in fabrics and book paste. They are nocturnal insects and often prefer dark areas.
A treatment for these little critters can be incorporated into an annual treatment for cockroaches, ants and spiders and a 12 month warranty is automatic for this treatment.
