Chicago Silverfish Treatment


Silverfish

How To Identify A Silverfish Infestation

Appearance - Ranging from white to brown-gray (or sometimes bluish) in color, and measuring around an inch in length, these insects' bodies squirm when they move. This movement, along with their fish-like scales, most likely contribute to their name “silverfish.”.

Behavior - You will find silverfish hiding in dark areas of your house around paper or clothing sources such as a bathroom or laundry room. Although silverfish do not bite, they have incredibly destructive feeding habits, and commonly destroy clothing, wallpaper, and papers - especially in damp, dark areas.

Why You Might Have Silverfish

Although silverfish in Chicago are resilient and can survive almost anywhere, they prefer high humidity, which is why they congregate to kitchens and bathrooms.

During the warmer months of the year they can eat glues and papers of insulation materials in the attic and wall voids. Lacking a dehumidifier for basements of other rooms prone to humidity might draw silverfish in, especially if they have easy access to old books, papers in cardboard boxes or linen they can feed upon within your home.”

Since they also like a variety of food sources like sugars, proteins, and starches, it's wise to avoid leaving food out.

Reasons To Treat Your Silverfish Problem Immediately

Because they are nocturnal and often go unnoticed for a while, silverfish control in Chicago is tough. Chicago silverfish infestations can also quickly spiral out of hand because of their tendency to reproduce quickly. Having too many silverfish in your home puts your walls, linen and other pieces of property at risk, which can become costly.

Once an adult, female silverfish can produce up to twenty eggs every day for the duration of her life, which can last well over a year. Eggs are frequently laid in protected areas, such as crevices, cracks and under carpeting or rugs.

Once silverfish in Chicago find a space with ideal living conditions, their population will increase rapidly, so it is vital that you address the problem as soon as possible.

Silverfish extermination should be handled by a professional pest control technician. It is best if local Chicago professional silverfish exterminators are called to address the infestation since they are the most familiar with the silverfish that reside in our area.
