Where Are Silverfish Found?
Silverfish are one of the most common pests that you may encounter. They are small insects that can wreak havoc in the house. You can get rid of them easily by using a vacuum cleaner.
These insects can be found all over the world. Some of the most common places to find them include the pantry, bathrooms, basements, and attics.
Usually, silverfish prefer damp and dark areas. It is best to keep your pantry free of silverfish. A dehumidifier is also useful. This will make your area less attractive to them.
To keep silverfish away from your home, you can put sticky traps inside the house. These traps are made of a cardboard base and a thin layer of glue. The glue contains a pesticide that prevents the insects from suffering.
Another effective method of killing silverfish is to use newspaper traps. Silverfish will be drawn to the sticky paper and will be stuck to the glue. In fact, they will not be able to escape from the trap.
You can also place a glass container in dark, damp corners. The top of the glass container should have tape attached.
Although silverfish are not harmful to humans, they can cause damage to clothing and other materials. In addition, they can ruin books, wallpaper, carpets, and other stored items.
If you have been plagued with silverfish infestations, it’s a good idea to perform a regular home inspection. Orkin recommends an annual check.
