Bare silverfish eating your books or wallpaper from the inside out?

Our expert technicians at Imperial Pest Control will be pleased to control them for you. Call us on 416-837-1820 for more information about our silverfish and other insect pest eradication services.

Silverfish look like they sound – tiny, carrot shaped insects covered in metallic silver gray scales and measuring between ½" and ¾" in size. They have long delicate wavering antenna and most species are usually found living beneath the bark of trees or in animal nests.

However, a few species prefer to live in human habitations and can often be found behind loose strips of wallpaper where they can live in the dark, warm and protected, and feed off the starchy paste and paper that makes up their high carbohydrate and protein-based diet.

If left undiscovered,silverfish can cause extensive damage to books and book bindings, paper products in general, textiles, artificial silk, cereals, dried meat products, glues and other materials of plant origin. Once they hatch,silverfish will pass through several moults before they reach full adult status which can take up to three years. They are unusually long-lived insects and can survive as full grown adults for a further three years in areas where they are undisturbed and have a constant supply of starchy food material.

Adult female silverfish lay clutches of between 5-50 eggs at a time but breeding grounds are notoriously difficult to find which is why controlling silverfish infestations is usually best left to commercial pest controlcompanies such as Imperial Pest Control.

We have the expert, trained technicians who know where to look and exactly how to most effectively apply the chemical pesticide treatments that are the most successful way to treat silverfish infestations.

As with all of our treatments, once we have exterminated your initial silverfish infestation we will be able to suggest steps you can take to avoid future problems.
