Local Sunshine Coast Silverfish Treatment Services
Commonly referred to as ‘fish moth’, the silverfish is a pest that got its name from its fishlike structure and its pattern of motion which is also fishlike as well as its silver/grey color.
They are usually found in difficult to reach places like your ceilings, basements, attics and sometimes even under sinks, bath tubs and the likes.
They are fast and small which make them difficult to spot and thus, difficult to eradicate, unless you already have a comprehensive knowledge on them.
They are quite dangerous for your home or workplace as not only do they feed on anything containing carbohydrates like cereals and sugar but also things like wallpapers and clothes due to the presence of starch in them.
