Dealing with a Silverfish Infestation in Warwickshire

We all love to complain about the grey, rainy weather in Warwickshire and the rest of England, but did you know that this moist climate also contributes to some of our most notorious pest infestations. Silverfish are quite disgusting little pests that absolutely love wet, moist areas, and are especially attracted to damp clothing or paper.

The problem with silverfish is that they're both nocturnal and quick moving, along with being quite small, all of which means that it's often tough to spot them. Even in homes with a full blown silverfish infestation, you may typically only see one or two of them, and falsely believe that they aren't much of a problem.

However, their ability to hide along with their incredibly fast reproduction rates means that silverfish infestations are incredibly commonplace. In fact, if you see one, this likely means that your home is already fully infested. So, when you find one, it's usually necessary to hire a professional Warwickshire pest control company to exterminate them.

Of course, you could try to eliminate the problem on your own, but the nature of silverfish makes them especially hard to get rid of, with most infestations quickly returning if not properly taken care of by a pest control company. The issue with silverfish is that most commercially available pesticides and other products will only kill the adults, while it's necessary to also find and remove the eggs and larva as well to fully eliminate the infestation.

There really is no way to take care of a silverfish infestation on your own, as all of the products available only target individual insects instead of the entire colony, including eggs and larva. This is why it's typically always necessary to use a pest control company instead of trying to go it on your own. After finally ridding yourself of the problem, you can then work to stop it from returning by controlling the humidity in the home and focusing on cleanliness.
