Silverfish Pest Facts
Small, brown-grey or silver in colour, silverfish are fast-moving and fast-breeding pests. They are capable of surviving in most climates but especially love dark, damp places like basements, kitchens, bathrooms, garages and sheds. Paper and damp clothing are a favourite food for silverfish and you can almost always find them in any boxes you have stored in your shed or garage.
They may have infested your wardrobes and begun the process of destroying clothes and books long before you even realise you have an infestation. Whilst they are harmless to people, they certainly are very unpleasant house guests. Zero Termite and Pest can advise you on what to look for and where they are most likely to be lurking.

Know what to look for
Silverfish are a constant and annoying infestation that many homes deal with
They are easily spread and can be difficult to treat. Early detection and treatment are key to successful silverfish control.
Keep an eye out for these silverfish infestation signs:
Feeding marks: A tell-tale sign of a silverfish problem is feeding damage. Typically done to clothing, paper and cardboard boxes
Droppings: A obvious sign of an infestation is droppings. Silverfish droppings can be identified as small round pellets that resemble black peppercorn. These dropping can often be found in food bags, boxes and between books and papers.
Yellow Stains: Similar to droppings, a sign of regular silverfish activity is yellow staining, particularly on paper and linen.
Silverfish and their shed skin: The most obvious sign of a silverfish infestation, are the culprits themselves. Where there is one silverfish, there are usually many more. Silverfish shed their skin regularly throughout their lifecycle. These skins are small and often get sept away unnoticed. If there is an increasing amount of shed skin, it may be time for a pest inspection. All our Pest inspections are in compliance with the requirements of the Australian Standard.
A silverfish treatment programme is the best way to treat a silverfish infestation. If left untreated, silverfish can quickly spread and take over. Zero Termite and Pest offer quality pest control services to ensure that early detection, prevention and treatment occurs.
Our certified technicians are extensively trained and experienced professionals. They understand the nesting and feeding habits of silverfish and use this knowledge to choose the correct silverfish control methods for effective management.
Silverfish Pest Control: Prevention Tips
Your home may require some caulking of particular cracks and crevices or that a dehumidifier in your home is particularly humid.
Some additional steps that you can take yourself for prevention may include storing any cardboard boxes on shelves rather than on floors where they may become damp, keeping food supplies in sealed storage containers rather than cardboard packaging and storing old or off-season clothing in plastic bags to keep the silverfish out.
If you have an older or renovator home with wallpaper, it may be time to consider redecorating by removing the wallpaper and painting instead.
Silverfish breed quickly and the severity of an infestation may go unnoticed for long periods of time.
- Consider replacing old wallpaper with paint.
- If your home is particularly humid, use a dehumidifier to prevent breeding and infestation
- Store boxes on shelves, where they cannot become damp.
- Store food in airtight containers
- Store unused and old clothing in sealed plastic packets to keep silverfish at bay
- Ensure cracks are sealed to restrict movement and nesting spaces
