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.

Don’t Want Silverfish?
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.
