Silverfish are the original “book worms.”

Although silverfish are a wingless, flattened insect with two or three filaments near the rear end of the abdomen, they can devastate a library or closet. Silverfish like to feed on starch and fabric, and can cause major damage to book bindings. They can also cause damage to pictures, paintings, paper products, and even wallpaper. Because they can proliferate a home or office, treating silverfish requires us to provide a comprehensive solution where we can attack them from all areas. Different parts of the dwelling require different treatment options, and we can provide them all. Ask us how.

Call us at the first sign of silverfish.

Each silverfish can produce 20 more in a matter of weeks, making it easy for a silverfish infestation to get out of hand. Silverfish are a small wingless insect.  Their diet consists of carbohydrates such as sugar or starches and they prefer dark, damp areas and are attracted to paper and damp clothing.  Their presence can sometimes attract carpet beetles.  In large numbers they can cause a lot of damage to stored books, files and vintage clothes.   Keeping silverfish out is an ongoing process, not a one-time treatment.  Our technician will be able to access the situation and determine the most effective method of treatment.
