Causes and Solutions for Silverfish Infestations

Normally silverfish are found in basements, crawl spaces, bathrooms and attics due to the high humidity of these areas.  Silverfish will feed on Photos, Paper, Glue, Human Hair, sugar and many other materials containing starches or sugars. Completely removing silverfish can be very hard to do by yourself as silverfish are a nocturnal insect and can move rapidly in search of food and a nesting area.  There are home removal methods that are time consuming and more times than not fail to get rid of the silverfish.  There are a few things you can do help keep the silverfish out.  Having a basement or crawl space dehumidifier installed, vacuuming and cleaning will help.  If you are experiencing a silverfish or other pest problems contact Ameri Care Services today.
