Silverfish Pest Control Services

Silverfish are a common pest in Arizona, but did you know there are actually several species of silverfish living in the state? These small, wingless insects range from just 1/2 to 1 inch long and can be found in homes and businesses. They typically inhabit damp areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, basements, attics, and garages. Silverfish feed on items that contain starch or protein including wallpaper glue, book bindings, and fabrics – making them an unwelcome guest if they invade your home or business.

Silverfish can be divided into two main types: the common silverfish (Ctenolepisma longicaudata) and the firebrat (Thermobia domestic). Common silverfish are grey or brown in color with three long tails that protrude from their back ends. They’re typically most active during the night and can often be seen scurrying around in search of food. Firebrats, on the other hand, are reddish-brown in color with four long tails. These pests are found mostly in warm and humid areas such as near furnaces or boilers where they feed on mold, fungi, and paper products.

If you’re in Arizona and think you may be dealing with a silverfish infestation, there are several signs to look out for. These include the presence of small holes in paper or cardboard products and a musty smell or droppings around areas where silverfish have been active. You may also find silverfish themselves as they’re nocturnal and tend to come out at night.

Silverfish pose little threat to humans, but they can cause damage to property. In addition to eating paper products such as books and wallpaper, silverfish can also chew through fabrics like silk, cotton, and rayon. They may also contaminate food sources with their droppings or saliva if they come in contact with food items.

If you think you’re dealing with a silverfish infestation, it’s important to act quickly and call our professionals to help. We can identify the type of silverfish present and develop a plan to eradicate them from your home or business. In some cases, this may involve using traps, baits, and insecticides to remove the pests.

Silverfish are a common pest in Arizona but they don’t have to be a problem. By understanding the different types of silverfish in the area, being aware of signs that indicate an infestation, and calling our professionals for help if needed – you can help keep your home or business free from these little pests.
