Silverfish are harmless to humans however they can do a huge amount of damage to the clothes in your wardrobe! Silverfish can do damage to fabric, papers, books, photos and wallpaper.
They are nocturnal and reproduce quickly so can often be doing damage without you being aware. You may not even notice until you go to wear something that you haven’t worn in a little while and discover little holes throughout the garment.
Like other pests they can survive in almost all conditions and particularly like dark, humid and damp areas. Silverfish commonly live in the roof void, subfloor, wall voids, bathrooms and in book and paper collections and wardrobes.
The strategic application of a registered insecticidal dust can successfully eradicate a silverfish infestation. As silverfish prefer dark, undisturbed places to live the householder can help to manage such infestations by ensuring the premises are light and airy.
