This primitive insect pest gets its name from the metallic gray sheen of the scales that cover its body that can be up to ¾ ” long. They are often seen crawling on walls and ceilings. Silverfish are primarily a pest of paper and can damage books, photos, and artwork. They are attracted to the ingredients in wallpaper adhesive and will often damage the wallpaper in the process of feeding on the paste.
Large populations of Silverfish can be found in attics, especially in homes with wooden shake roofs. Because of this, most of the activity we see is on the upper floors of homes. Complete elimination of Silverfish could be achieved with fumigation, but the effort and expense is impractical for something that does not do structural damage. Masters Touch has products and techniques which can effectively reduce Silverfish populations.
We provide general pest control including Silverfish extermination services to customers in Chester County, PA, The Main Line, Western Delaware County and Western Montgomery County
