Silverfish Infestation And Associated Issues

Silverfish do not bite or destroy your home and may appear to be harmless. In reality, the creepy creature can bring several undesired effects to your world. You may experience the following range of issues with the pest:

  • The pest prefers damp conditions and active in darker environments. They feed books, wallpapers, leather clothing, painting, and more.
  • They can contaminate your food by running over it.
  • The pest is generally regarded as a nuisance and an indication of non-maintenance of the property. The creature can also give you clues about the misses in the hygienic standards of the property.
  • Silverfish infestation can bring other pests – mostly the predators of the pest – inside your property. You can expect centipedes, cockroaches, spiders, and other pests interior.
  • Studies confirm that silverfish infestation can develop allergy and asthma symptoms in some people.

Signs Of Silverfish Infestation

Since silverfish prefers to live in darker environments and active mostly at night, you may not be able to see them visually to confirm the infestation. You can confirm silverfish infestation at your property with the following signs:

  • Silverfish moults throughout its life. Therefore, you can find their cast skin on the floor and damp areas of your property.
  • If you see irregularly shaped holes in your clothes and other fabrics, you can doubt the presence of the pest. They also eat glue and wallpapers and leave the nibble marks.
  • Silverfish also leaves yellowish stains on clothes. Check your clothes regularly, and if you see yellowish stains on your clothes, you can confirm the presence of the pest.
  • You can visually see these pests in bathrooms, basement, attic, crawlspace, and other hidden and dark areas of your property if there is an infestation.
