The hot and humid Darwin climate is the perfect breeding ground for silverfish. They have been known to ruin household items such as books, carpets, fabrics and paintings.

Why the need for silverfish control & extermination?

Silverfish may not have the destructive reputation of some of our other Darwin pests but they can certainly cause extensive damage.

They will thrive in damp and humid areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and laundries. That said, they will be found almost anywhere in buildings, even roof voids and wall cavities.

Habits and life cycle of silverfish

In Australia there are 28 described species of silverfish, about 5 of which have successfully invaded buildings and become a known pest.

Silverfish are very fast, nocturnal insects that will do their best to steer clear of light.

They struggle to climb smooth surfaces. This is why an early sign of infestation can be finding them in basins and baths.

They will feed on any type of human food, but prefer more starchy materials. Sources of glue are very likely to be attractive to them.

There have been many reported cases of infestations doing major damage to photo albums, books and other prized possessions.

Silverfish can survive in your home for up to 4 years. Females will continually lay eggs both singly and in batches. They can produce up to 100 eggs and 3000 offspring over her lifetime.
