Silverfish Pest Control In Brisbane

Silverfish treatment requires a particular expertise due to the unusually versatile and well-adapted nature of this pest. Generally active at night, silverfish in Brisbane move quickly, will eat through virtually anything, and can live for years if unchecked. Damaged and ruined clothes, books and even wallpaper can often result from an absence of silverfish control.

We at SWAT Pest Control Services in Brisbane have been dealing with this pest for decades, and our advanced approach can get rid of silverfish for a long time to come. The first task is to identify the dark, often damp places where these pests thrive – and clear away these spaces hygienically. Our home inspectors are skilled at identifying the areas where silverfish live, and advising customers on how to prevent their reappearance.

    Actual eradication, of course, takes chemicals – and our method of silverfish control in Brisbane is as thorough as it is effective. Our sprays are friendly to the environment as well as humans and pets, although the silverfish themselves will have an unenviable experience.

    Our chemical-based approach to silverfish pest control in Brisbane is quite simply the only one to have a lasting effect that prevents the return of these fast-moving creatures. Manual attempts to neutralise these hard-to-catch nuisances are almost certain to fail, while homemade sprays are often harmful to humans.

      Frequently Asked Questions: Silverfish Pest Control

      Silverfish might seem harmless enough, but it doesn’t change the fact that they can be a nuisance in your Brisbane home or business. 

      Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding silverfish pest control, for your reference… 

      Silverfish are shy and nocturnal, so you might not see them often. Here are some signs that might indicate a silverfish infestation:

      • Live or dead silverfish: If you spot these silvery-grey, teardrop-shaped insects, you likely have a problem.
      • Silverfish droppings: These look like tiny, dark pepper flecks and can be found anywhere near where silverfish are active.
      • Damaged belongings: Silverfish feed on starchy materials. Look for holes or damage in books, wallpaper, photos, clothing, and cardboard boxes.
      • Cast skins: As silverfish grow, they shed their outer skin. Finding these around your property can indicate an infestation.

      Silverfish don’t bite or spread diseases, however, they can indeed cause damage to your belongings. They’re particularly attracted to things like:

      • Books and paper products: Silverfish love the starch in these materials and can chew holes in them.
      • Wallpaper: The glue used in wallpaper can be a food source for silverfish, leading to peeling or damage.
      • Clothing: Natural fibres like cotton and linen can be very attractive to silverfish, causing holes in your clothes.

      There are ways to prevent silverfish from taking up residence in your Brisbane home or business:

      • Reduce moisture: Silverfish thrive in damp environments. So, fix leaky faucets and pipes, and ensure proper ventilation in basements and bathrooms. 
      • Dehumidify: Consider using a dehumidifier in areas that are prone to moisture build-up.
      • Store belongings properly: Store books, photos, and important documents in airtight containers. You should also wash and dry clothes thoroughly before storing them.
      • Vacuum regularly: Vacuuming regularly, especially in areas where you’ve seen silverfish activity, can help remove silverfish and their eggs.

      S.W.A.T Pest Control offers a swift, efficient, and affordable silverfish control service in Brisbane:

      • Inspect your property: First, we’ll thoroughly inspect your home or business to identify the source of the infestation and the extent of the problem.
      • Develop a customised treatment plan: From there we’ll put together a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs. 
      • EPA-registered products: Rest assured, we only use EPA-registered products that are both safe for your family and pets, and the environment. 
      • Follow-up service: Once we have finished, we may recommend follow-up treatments to ensure that all silverfish and eggs have been thoroughly eliminated.

      This can vary significantly depending on how big your property is, how serious the infestation has gotten, and what type of treatment is required. In any case, S.W.A.T Pest Control Brisbane is dedicated to providing superior pest control services for less.
