Salt Lake City Silverfish Treatment


Silverfish

How To Identify A Silverfish Infestation

Appearance - Ranging from white to brown-gray (or sometimes bluish) in color, and usually measuring around an inch in length, these insects' bodies squirm when they move. This movement, along with their fish-like scales, most likely contributed 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 Salt Lake City 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, you may find silverfish to become more abundant in your home. Not having a dehumidifier for basements of other rooms prone to humidity will draw silverfish in, along with easy access to any paper or linen they can feed upon within your home.

Finding them in drains is common. Controlling the humidity levels in your home is the best way to prevent a Silverfish infestation. 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 Salt Lake City is tough. Salt Lake City 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 between up to twenty eggs every day for the duration of her life, which can last up to five years. Eggs are frequently laid in protected areas, such as crevices, cracks and under carpeting or rugs.

Once silverfish in Salt Lake City 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 Salt Lake Cityprofessional silverfish exterminators are called to address the infestation since they are the most familiar with the silverfish that reside in our area.

What Our Customers Say


Somehow ended up with bed bugs and let me tell you; what an ordeal! Thankfully the exterminator they sent was friendly and thorough. He took us through the process and made it as painless as possible; really glad we went with them.

We decided to call the professionals after seeing several large spiders in our little kids' rooms, and have a significant mouse problem in the chicken coop. Preventive is professional, knowledgeable, prompt, and friendly. They were able to help us figure out a safe way to take care of the mice in the chicken coop without harming the chickens, which I am happy to say the mice are gone! Thanks, Preventive!

We had recently switched to another pest control service because they offered a lower price. They were awful! They would reschedule us without even asking and never even showed up once in our three months with them. When I came crawling back like the bugs you kill, Taylor was an amazing rep to talk to!!! You guys not only scheduled us way faster than when they could come but you called back and ended up coming THAT DAY within a half an hour with a very kind pest-control agent. His name was Dave and he was personable with my kids got the job done quickly and was awesome! Taylor even scheduled another free visit a week after Dave came to make sure everything was going well. We had never known what another company was like because Preventive was the first one we had ever tried. Looking back, I see that we already were recovering TOP notch service and shouldn't have left. We won't leave you guys ever again! Unless we move…Can you please move with us?
