What Are Silverfish?
A Silverfish is a small, wingless insect that as the name implies, is a silvery grey in appearance.
It has a backend (abdomen) that tapers, giving it an almost fish-like appearance, this along with its fish-like wiggle gives the insect its name.
How Long Do Silverfish Live?
Silverfish live anywhere between 2 to 8 years. They have been known to survive for up to 12 months without food. A water-rich diet allows silverfish to stay alive without eating any solid food matter.
What Do Silverfish Eat?
Silverfish eat mainly a starch diet, this can include glues from book bindings, starch residue on plastered walls, glued substances including the paste behind your wallpaper!
Silverfish thrive in moist, damp conditions and are often noted in loft spaces, basements, behind bath panels and in your water closet.
Any area in your home or business that offers both high humidity and moisture, allows Silverfish to thrive. The fact that they are nocturnal by nature, often allows infestations to go unnoticed for some considerable time.
Are Silverfish Harmful?
Silverfish, aren’t harmful and are not known to be vectors of any disease. Silverfish can, however, cause significant problems by contaminating food as they often feed from starchy glues on food packaging and can fall into food products.
Do Silverfish Bite?
No. Silverfish do not bite.
Bristol Silverfish Removal And Treatment
Advance Pest Control Bristol can rid you of your problem. Whether you are experiencing issues at your home or business, you need professional help.
What About DIY Treatment?
There are DIY insecticidal treatments on the domestic shelf, but these rarely work.
Insecticidal products that you can buy over the counter, in supermarkets and hardware shops are very limited in their true value. They very rarely work in the way that professional treatments can.
Insecticides bought on the domestic shelf, are often costly, and add this to the fact that they very rarely work, can cost you a significant amount, especially when you then add the cost of a professional treatment.
What Treatment Will We Carry Out?
We will attend your property and assess the level of your infestation. Once we know how bad a problem you are experiencing, we will be able to tackle the areas affected and bring a speedy end to your issue.
We use ONLY the very best products available to us as professionals and the insecticides we use benefit also from an added ingredient called an IGR-Insect growth regulator.
An IGR is a product that prevents immature (juvenile) insects from reaching maturity and denies the juvenile the ability of reproduction.
As Silverfish are primarily nocturnal by nature, the insecticide we use has a very high residual effect, thus meaning it stays active even if the offending insect is not present at the time of treatment.
The treatment we carry out will be an insecticidal spray treatment. We use a hand pressured sprayer that allows us to treat areas quickly and effectively.
