Silverfish

Our remedy for silverfish control

First, contact us. Silverfish are one of the hardest insects to control, especially in homes with wood shake (shingle) roofs. Anything that holds moisture and allows for mold to grow will serve as food for silverfish. Treatment of cracks and voids as well as attic and crawl spaces is necessary to minimize silverfish. Because they can live in hard-to-treat spaces such as in soffits, behind fascia boards and under shingles, professional treatment is a must when silverfish are a regular problem.

How to Identify a Silverfish

Appearance

Slender and shiny silver or gray, with long antennae and three tail-like appendages in back; 1/2- to 1 inch.

Habitat

Silverfish prefer warm, damp, undisturbed areas and may go undetected for years. They live in cracks and voids and are commonly found in attics, basements and crawl spaces. Because they feed on fungal molds and organic matter, they are also seen regularly in kitchens and bathrooms. They can damage fabrics, paper and book bindings.

Diet

Molds and starchy materials like cereals, flour, sweet foods, paper, curtains and wallpaper.

Highly recommended 

“Sean was informative, on time, communicated clearly and understandably, listened attentively, put everything back he moved during the treatment and was polite. In the Fall I have used Rose Pest Solutions for about 7 years annually to keep insects from coming into my home for their over Winter residence. Highly recommended​.”
