Pest Control for Silverfish in Temecula, Fallbrook, Oceanside, and the Surrounding Areas
If you live in Temecula, Fallbrook, Oceanside, and the surrounding communities, there is a good chance you have seen a silverfish in your home. Silverfish are nocturnal insects, approximately 12–25 mm long, and have a silver abdomen that tapers at the end, making it look like a small fish. Silverfish can live up to three years, with the female laying 60 eggs or more at a time. Requiring a humid environment to survive, the technicians at Knockout Pest Control & Termite often find silverfish in sinks, bathtubs, and attics. The silverfish’s diet consists of carbohydrates like flour and oats, and starches like paper products, cardboard, book bindings, and glue. Do not be surprised if you encounter them in coffee, sugar, hair, carpet, or clothes. Silverfish are not poisonous to people and do not transmit disease, but they will contaminate food and destroy belongings.
Controlling Silverfish: What to Expect on the First Pest Control Service Visit
If you suspect a silverfish infestation in your home or office, here is what you can expect during the initial visit from the professionals at Knockout Pest Control & Termite in Temecula. The technician starts with an inspection of your property to find the cause of the silverfish’s presence. Next, our outdoor pest control technician applies the insecticidal barrier around the exterior of your property to protect your home or office from infestation and to control the silverfish population. The low toxicity insecticidal used by Knockout creates a barrier for silverfish and rids you of this household pest problem.
