Silverfish Control Melbourne, Silverfish Extermination

For a genuine pest, our silverfish control team in Melbourne appreciates that the name actually sounds quite attractive. Sadly, it’s a false impression, and the creature’s title itself is also misleading. These are tear-drop shaped insects, their wingless and tapered bodies leading to what seems to be a tail. They are usually less than 20cms in length; perhaps their slithering style of movement, as well as colour, leads to the fish connotation.

Silverfish can often be difficult to spot, hiding away and operating in the dark; and, like many insidious pests, swift silverfish extermination is recommended because they can reproduce so quickly, leading to a severe infestation. Even if you don’t spot them initially, you might just notice evidence of their droppings, which look somewhat like pepper. Otherwise, you are more likely to spot the damage they have done as they feed.
