To take the necessary measures to prevent a silverfish infestation on your property and understand how these creatures are pests in Australia, you need some background information, and that is exactly what this article is for.

Silverfish Sunshine Coast

Domestic silverfishes are common throughout Australia. They tend to find homes conducive enough for them to breed and, therefore, unleash their destructive feeding habits on your household items like books, plasters and basically anything that contains starch or cellulose.

They are not considered regular nuisances as that will gradually lead to an unnecessary amount of loss and expenses.

Everything you need to know about silverfish

These pests can survive in varying conditions and environments in Australia; however, high humidity regions are where they thrive.

They can be found in dark or damp areas of your property like the cupboards, kitchens, basements, attics and the likes.

These pests are nocturnal by nature and are also quick in motion, making them difficult to see. They are, however, characterized by a pale-silvery colour and their wingless bodies that are about 14mm-16mm long.

The common sign people have of their presence in homes is when they find their clothes with small, irregularly created holes.

Other ways to notice them are through the skin cast they leave behind when they shed skins and the yellowish stains on cellulose or starch-containing items in your home like fabric, cardboard, and cereal boxes, among other things.

Their entry paths to your home can differ largely, but they are commonly brought in from external sources like papers, books, and the likes, that have been infested already.

They multiply quite easily, so an infestation from these guys is not something to overlook.

Therefore, it is expedient that these pests do not have a chance to wreak their havoc on your household through our professional silverfish treatment. Contact us today!
