Blog: Silverfish update

Delta BC

Go Green Pest Control is warning that there has been a massive increase in the number of infestations lately, with the company recording a 55 per cent increase in call-outs from last January. Delta has seen a immense increase in infestations from these pests, accounting for more than 25 per cent of all call-outs. Silverfish can lay up to 20 eggs a day. Named for their silvery brown colour and the squirming movements that look like a fish, they are a household pest whose infestations are known for the devastation they cause. They are especially attracted to paper and damp clothing. Commonly found in stored boxes in garages and sheds they are also drawn to warm, damp environments like kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. They are known for eating dead skin (our dead skin), wallpaper, books, and curtains and other items with starch, cellulose, and sugar. To help control silverfish vacuum weekly. This helps to remove their food.
