How Silverfish enter the houseSilverfish (Lepisma Saccharina) are mostly harmless to humans. They are not as dangerous to humans as other pests like bed bugs or cockroaches. Silverfish can be a real pain if you are a bookworm, love crafts and paper or like to store keepsakes, such as photos and letters. With its small stature and long body, this creature can sneak its way into any space easily, feeding on paper goods stored inside boxes – especially unused storage rooms! While silverfish tend to be nocturnal and hard to catch due to erratic behavior patterns, leaving them alone puts fabric and paper goods at risk of further damage. You may need to act quickly if you have silverfish in your home. They can cause serious damage.

Silverfish can enter through cracks and gaps in foundations and walls as well as holes around doors and windows. Silverfish prefer dark, moist, and humid areas. If you plan to set up traps in your home, you should consider placing them in areas with low light, such as basements and bathrooms. Also, you can place them under sinks and toilets, behind furnaces, stoves, and refrigerators.

Do silverfish bite? Once they sense your presence, silverfish will quickly retreat to their hiding spots. Although experts say that silverfish never bite humans, they have reported cases of people who were bitten and had sores on their skin. Silverfish bites are usually attributed to one of two things: either the silverfish is removing dead skin from the body of the victim, or it could be a centipede.

You can stop further infestations by controlling humidity with your HVAC system. Also, seal any cracks on your property. Professional pest exterminators can provide fast and lasting results. Silverfish can multiply rapidly, laying up to 100 eggs a day. This means that the situation is easily out of hand without professional help. To find out the best treatment for silverfish, call your local exterminator team.
