How to Spot a Silverfish Infestation

SilverfishUnfortunately, silverfish are among the most common pests that North Carolina homeowners deal with. While spotting one here and there from time to time may not be an obvious cause for concern, even just one silverfish sighting could mean that there are dozens or hundreds more lurking in other areas of the house. Because silverfish thrive in warm and humid areas, they are most common during the warm months of spring and summer and are often found in basements and bathrooms.

Dangers of Silverfish

Unfortunately, silverfish can cause a great deal of damage within the home if they are not taken care of promptly. Often times, signs of a silverfish infestation are quite obvious. Homeowners may find holes in a room’s wallpaper or in clothes that show up suddenly and inexplicably. Sometimes, these holes are surrounded by a yellow stain. Silverfish feed on these materials and others that contain cellulose, starch, and sugar. Therefore, it is not uncommon for homeowners to also find holes in carpet, books, and photographs.

Other even more obvious signs of an infestation can be as seemingly harmless as finding a few silverfish in the home on the same day. Most often, the pests are discovered in laundry rooms, showers, bath tubs, and on shelves.

Steps to Take

Lowering thermostat temperatures during the summer can make the home a less suitable place for silverfish to live and may discourage more from infesting the residence. However, this may not take care of the silverfish that have already set up shop within the home.

In general, it is best to hire a pest control expert that specializes in silverfish control and eradication. This will help to ensure that the problem is taken care of properly and in a timely manner. Specifically, homeowners looking for assistance with silverfish control can always turn to the professionals here at Clegg’s. We know what it takes to handle a silverfish infestation at any home. Furthermore, we offer pest control services for bed bugs and termites as well.
