Detect a Silverfish Infestation

Spotting a silverfish problem early can save you a lot of hassle. Look out for damaged household items, especially those containing starch. Silverfish love starchy food and their feeding marks can be a clear sign of their presence. Also, keep an eye out for their skin sheddings and yellow stains around your home. These pests are known to trigger allergies in some individuals, so it’s best to act fast if you notice these signs.

At Pest Control Gold Coast, we’re here to help you identify and tackle an infestation before it gets out of hand.


Keeping Silverfish Away

Prevention is key to maintaining a silverfish-free environment. We recommend focusing on creating conditions that are less attractive to silverfish. This includes reducing humidity by improving ventilation in humid areas, such as kitchens and basements. Proper storage of food and regular cleaning can also deter silverfish from making your property their home.

Our experts at Pest Control Gold Coast are committed to providing you with effective strategies and advice to keep these pests at bay, ensuring a safe and comfortable environment for both homes and businesses.
