Issues Caused By Silverfish

These wingless creatures are able to live in most types of environments. They usually pop up in dark and damp rooms, such as kitchens, bathrooms, attics, basements, and others.

They can cause a lot of damage and various issues to both residential and commercial buildings, such as:

  • Silverfish build their nest close to places where they can find food. Unsurprisingly, the food becomes contaminated as a result.
  • They also consume personal products, such as clothing, papers, and books. They also use these objects as hiding places.
  • Silverfish make small holes through biting, leaving yellow stains on these surfaces.
  • Silverfish skin can trigger allergic and asthmatic reactions.
  • Silverfish predators, such as cockroaches and spiders, may start infesting your property as well since they now have a reliable source of food. This may make the pest infestation worse and cause other harmful diseases to spread.
  • Silverfish often live inside plumbing and linen piles and can easily damage them.

Signs Of Silverfish Infestation

As silverfish live in hidden areas, it will be difficult to determine if it is silverfish that have infested your property. If you see any of the following signs, then you have silverfish lurking around:
  • Silverfish cast skin and droppings look like pepper. These usually are found on floors and walls.
  • Holes in the wallpaper indicates a silverfish infestation is happening.
  • Silverfish cause yellow stains to appear on books, fabrics, and wallpaper.
  • Dark areas of your property that trap moisture, such as bathrooms, attics, and basements, are the most likely places that you will find silverfish.
  • Silverfish eat gum and glue, so silverfish may try to eat any furniture that glue or gum was used
  • Look through your books and magazines and any cardboard you have for silverfish since they often hide behind these during the day.
