Although silverfish don’t pose any threats to human health or safety, they can be quite a nuisance, especially if they get into a box full of old photographs or books. Silverfish feed on carbohydrates, proteins, and cellulose—in other words, most of the items you have stored in your basement or attic. A silverfish infestation is also commonly accompanied by moisture issues and mold damage. And because silverfish are known to reproduce at an alarming pace, treating an infestation on your own often proves ineffective.
In this video you will learn more about silverfish infestations and why a professional pest control company needs to handle the task of exterminating them from your home. If you live in Long Island and suspect that silverfish are nesting in your home, don’t delay in scheduling a pest control inspection. The longer you wait to hire a pest control expert, the more damage can be done and the bigger the infestation will grow.
