AS Pest Control provide an efficient, affordable and professional silverfish control service in Mansfield. Available 24/7 we offer a quick and reliable service to conveniently remove the silverfish problem.
Silverfish grow to about 1/2 inch in length and are covered in silvery scales. They eat material high in protein, sugar or starch including cereals, moist wheat flour, starch in book bindings, sizing in paper and paper on which there is glue or paste. They will often attack wallpaper, eating irregular holes through the paper to get to the paste. They may also bite very small holes in various fabrics.
Silverfish are found in bookcases, closet shelves, behind baseboards and in kitchens. They prefer kitchens and bathrooms because of the moisture. They malt as many as 50 times during their adult life so the appearance of cast skins can signify they are present.

To discourage silverfish removing the moist, humid environment by fixing leaks in pipework, improving ventilation and using dehumidifiers can help.
Keeping dust and debris to a minimum, vacuuming rarely disturbed areas and keeping food stored in sealed containers will help to remove food available.
Large populations will need to be professionally treated using targeted solutions.

AS Pest Control will always assess the silverfish infestation and use the most appropriate treatment for each case.
All areas for treatment need to cleared and washed down or vacuumed to ensure the treatment can be effective. An insecticidal spray will then be used to treat the areas where the silverfish are commonly seen.
All insecticides are biodegradable, almost odorless, non-tainting and do not corrode or stain.
Once treatment has been applied DO NOT wash down or vacuum the area(s) for at least 2 months. The insecticide will slowly degrade but will break down straight away if you wash or vacuum treated surfaces. Immediately after treatment let the spray dry, do not clean or wipe up any puddles, if you touch the treated surface while still wet then wash off, do not let animals on the treated areas until dry.
Ensure any leaking pipework is fixed and look at options to remove moisture from the infected rooms either by improving ventilation or by installing a dehumidifier.
