How to Get Rid of Silverfish

Silverfish is an unwelcome pest that can infest homes. Silverfish tend to be attracted to damp, moist areas. They are most active at night.

Silverfish infestations are hard to control. However, there are things you can do to try and get rid of them. It is important to first identify where they are coming from. Fortunately, there are a number of all-natural repellants you can use to keep them away.

First, you need to eliminate the food and moisture they need. Food sources can include paper, cardboard, old clothing, dust, and other crumbs. Seal up any cracks and holes you can see in your home, especially if you have a large amount of moisture in your house.

You can also try using all-natural compounds to prevent silverfish from getting food. These compounds are non-toxic and contain an all-natural aroma. For example, lavender oil contains active compounds that repel silverfish.

If you are trying to get rid of a serious silverfish infestation, you may want to consider hiring an expert. Professional exterminators are trained to find the source of the problem and eliminate it. The severity of the infestation will dictate the level of follow-up that is required.

Another effective method is to use a dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers help remove moisture from the air, which is harmful to silverfish.

Another way to get rid of silverfish is to use a physical cover. This will help you prevent silverfish from getting into your home. A physical cover can be made of cottonwool and a few drops of lavender oil.
