SAFE Pest Control Methods – RIP TERMITE & PEST CONTROL SERVICES
Silverfish are a common pest species throughout Melbourne and Victoria. They prefer to eat items with a high starch content, eg. cotton fabrics, silk, paper, glues, some synthetic fabrics. Silverfish prefer a dark quiet environment and are most active at night. They nest in largely unused areas, such as dusty roof spaces, storage rooms, basements, wall cavities. Still, silverfish may roam extensively around the building in search of new food and moisture sources.
People often find silverfish in a bath where they had fallen in from the ceiling at night and become trapped by the smooth vertical walls of the bathtub.
A silverfish infestation usually occurs when they are transported into the building in infested cardboard boxes or furniture.
Pest Control Methods for Silverfish
RIP Termite & Pest Control Services Melbourne / Victoria initially carries out a thorough inspection of the premises for evidence of nesting and habitat locations, to determine the extent of the infestation and specific pest control options, with high emphasis on safety and effectiveness.
Insecticidal treatment is often required for effective control. The roof void and wall cavities are treated with a Pyrethroid Insecticidal Dust using specialised equipment. Other areas (Subfloor and Cupboard areas) are treated with a Pyrethroid liquid insecticidal spray.
