Silverfish might be small, but they are some of the most sinister pests that you can expect to find throughout British Columbia. These critters keep to the shadows, munching away at natural materials and causing damage. Bit by bit, slithering insects will eat you out of house and home unless you call Onsite to solve the problem for you. Our Abbotsford silverfish control tracks and treats visible adults as well as eggs and adolescents for a well-rounded result.
Squashing an insect or two under your shoe is not enough to get rid of silverfish populations as a whole. In fact, these slippery insects are some of the hardest pests to get rid of. Adult silverfish are nocturnal, darkly coloured and extremely quick. A mobile one of these insects might not look like anything more than a flash in the corner of the eye. Because they are so well camouflaged, it can take weeks, months or years to properly identify an infestation. Coming across even one of these pests mean that there are hundreds more lurking behind the scenes.
Many property owners try to take pest control into their own hands with silverfish traps or baits. Throwing a trap into a closet is not enough to get rid of these insects from problem ares. Silverfish love high humidity areas, so bathrooms, basements, and even low traffic kitchen cabinets can house tons of these pests. Certain methods, like diatomaceous earth claim to kill silverfish but they don’t treat those eggs and adolescent pests tucked into cracks and crevices. Don’t bother paying for amateur control tools that will just pave the way for quick re-infestation. The staff at Onsite know all the tips and tricks to get rid of pests and keep them gone with professional silverfish control methods.
There is no one-step solution to a silverfish infestation. The first step to getting rid of pests is to identify problem areas and cut down moisture. Instead of simply removing food sources, property owners need to get creative. Something as common place as cardboard boxes act as a five-star meal for these critters. Specialty tools track down and treat problem areas so you can be sure to get rid of these pests for good.
