What You Need to Know About Silver Fish

Spotting Them. Silver fish are slim, long, silver scaly, insects, with what can be only described as three tails and a pair of long antennae on its head.

Food sources. Silverfish feed mainly on small waste food particles, glues of bookbinding, wallpaper paste, fragments of dead insects and textiles such as cotton and linen.

Silverfish are common household pests and we carry out a lot of treatments in poorly ventilated buildings which cause high humidity or damp conditions. The presence of them may also highlight an underlying problem which may be a warning that repairs are needed. 

If you are regularly seeing silver fish you should investigate for any leaks or damp, at the same time a treatment may be required to knock down numbers, this will be in the form of a chemical insect spray.

Firebrat look very similar to silverfish, they are the same size and same shape although the colouring is slightly different. The main difference is a firebrat like warm or hot conditions such airing cupboards.

Pest-Tech Ltd can provide a professional treatment to both commercial and domestic properties that have located a silver fish or firebrat infestation.
