Silverfish are pests that thrive on humid conditions. Damp areas, including bathrooms and kitchens, as well as any dark and isolated spaces within your home, are at risk.
The name, silverfish, derives from their silvery, light grey colour and fish-like movements. People tend to see these small, wingless insects as a nuisance, rather than a threat; however they are unhygienic, especially in large numbers.
It’s common to find the odd silverfish in uninhabited areas of your home, for example, a cupboard under your stairs, but if left alone, they may breed. This can soon lead to infestations in kitchens, bathrooms and other areas of the house as they seek food, usually sugary items.

How to Get Rid of Silverfish
Silverfish infestations often stem from an issue with damp, so in order to get rid of silverfish, the damp problem must also be dealt with.
There are a number of causes of damp, including poor ventilation and broken pipes. By solving these problems and applying effective pest control, an issue with silverfish – be it at a business property or your home – can be completely eradicated.
The use of dehumidifiers and heaters, to reduce damp, will aid pest control methods for silverfish removal.
How to Treat Silverfish – JG’s Silverfish Eradication Service
Silverfish are naturally attracted to glucose (sugar), as this is what they feed on. Our treatment takes advantage of this by combining insecticidal sprays and powders, with sugar-based baits, to get the quickest possible results.
Every property and silverfish pest control problem is different. Generally, however, a combination of insecticidal treatment, with effective management to any damp problems, will result in total eradication of a silverfish infestation.
