Silverfish love dark, damp places like basements, attics and cupboards. They feed on starchy foods and paper. This damages books, photos and other items. An infestation can cause costly problems over time. Getting rid of these pests can be difficult to do on your own. Their small size allows them to easily hide in cracks and crevices.

We use proven methods to find and eliminate infestations. First, we’ll thoroughly inspect your home to locate any hiding spots or breeding grounds. We pay special attention to damp areas where these insects tend to gather. Next, we use eco-friendly treatments that specifically target them while remaining safe for your family and pets.

What are Silverfish?

Silverfish are small, wingless insects that get their name from their silvery, fish-like appearance. Their bodies typically measure 12–19 mm in length. They have six legs and two long antennae. The two most common species in Melbourne homes are the common silverfish and the Australian silverfish. Females can lay up to 60 eggs at one time. They prefer to give birth in moist, hidden areas. Eggs hatch in 2-8 weeks. These insects can live for 2-8 years.

Silverfish are nocturnal insects that avoid light. During the day, they hide in dark surface and humid spaces. At night, they come out to feed on starch and protein found in household items. These include glue, paper, photos, starch, or sugars which can damage household goods.

They find food sources by odour traces. The pests are attracted to the scents. When exposed or disturbed, silverfish move rapidly in a wiggly, fish-like motion. Though they live solitary lives, they may group together where there’s abundant food.

The Risks of Silverfish

Damage Caused by Silverfish

While not dangerous, silverfish can cause property damage. They can spread bacteria by contaminating food. Their feeding can harm books, photos, artwork, fabrics, carpeting and other items that contain starch or cellulose. These pests will munch their way through your home and possessions if left unchecked. This leads to costly losses.

Signs of a Silverfish Infestation

  • Seeing them scurrying around, especially at night
  • Finding yellowish stains or holes in fabrics
  • Presence of exoskeletons after molting
  • Increased humidity inside the home
  • Tiny holes in fabrics, cardboard boxes, photos, food crumbs, or other items

How to Control and Prevent Silverfish

  • Reduce humidity levels below 50%
  • Use dehumidifiers
  • Seal cracks and crevices to block entry
  • Store books and paper materials in sealed containers
  • Keep pantry food locked away
