Signs of a silverfish infestation
There are a few major signs of a silverfish infestation, namely:
Seeing a live specimen – This one is pretty obvious, yet it’s often one the of the most underestimated signs. Most people think that seeing a single bug proves nothing. What they don’t realize is in most cases that single bug is a sure way sign there are many more you don’t see.
Silverfish droppings – Another is droppings which is small, spherical in shape and black in colour. It can often be found where they eat – in stacks of paper, books, or your package of pasta or bread.
Paper damage – Since silverfish are suckers for paper, a definite tell-tale sign of their presence in your home is finding damage on paper or cardboard items. Whether we’re talking storage boxes, wallpaper, or books. Pay close attention to food containers filled with starchy carbs. If something is eating away at your cereal box, you probably have a silverfish infestation.
Shedded skin – Like many other insects, the silverfish bug shed their skin as they go through their lifecycle. Considering their size, the shed skin would literally be a small clue and difficult to detect, but if you’re looking for confirmation – this is it. The most likely places to find it would be in the kitchen, bathroom, or basement.
Our technicians will be able to assess the situation and advise on the most effective treatments to manage the infestation in your Perth home or business.
