Fox Pest Control’s Boston Area Silverfish Exterminator Service

Silverfish aren’t harmful to humans, but they are harmful to your belongings. Silverfish will find warm, damp spaces inside your Boston Area home such as basements and crawl spaces. Once inside they will eat starchy materials such as grains, fibers and fabrics. They will eat stored cereal, the glue from book bindings, silk and other textiles. Silverfish get their name from their shiny silver color, and can be identified by the 3 prong antennae on their backside. Once in a home, silverfish can be hard to get rid of and they can multiply quickly. If you have a silverfish infestation in your Boston Area home, call an exterminator. Fox Pest Control is here to help eliminate silverfish in your home.

Silverfish Control FAQ

HOW DO I GET RID OF SILVERFISH?

Silverfish are extremely difficult to remove without professional help because they are capable of eating virtually everything. Vacuuming can help scare them out of the open and back into hiding, but ultimately, you’ll want a silverfish extermination solution that can help you feel safe and comfortable in your own home. Call Fox Pest Control today to reclaim your home from these pests. 

WHY DO I HAVE SILVERFISH IN MY HOUSE?

Most likely, the silverfish came from the soil around your house. Maybe the soil near the house dried out, so they made their way toward a wet spot inside the home to keep from drying out.

ARE SILVERFISH DANGEROUS?

You want to get rid of silverfish because although silverfish don’t bite, they can contaminate your food, and they can certainly be a big nuisance. Once they get inside your Boston Area house, they can eat the walls, an old chess set, or even the carpet.

WHAT ARE SILVERFISH?

Silverfish are wingless insects with six legs, two antennae, and three antennae-like structures on their abdomen that look like three tails.

WHAT DO SILVERFISH EAT? WHAT MAKES SILVERFISH A PEST?

Silverfish treatment is important because they can eat almost anything. This destructive ability is one of the things that make this bug a pest for Boston Area homeowners.

Silverfish can eat “people food” as well as wallpaper, books, wall studs, and anything made of cotton or natural fabrics

ARE SILVERFISH BENEFICIAL TO THE ENVIRONMENT?

Actually, yes, they are — when they aren’t eating your books, clothes, or walls. These little silvery guys are like the garbage cleanup crew of the world. Since they can eat living or decaying material, they help clean up rotting things, from a dead animal to a fallen tree.

WHERE DO SILVERFISH GET THEIR NAME?

Silverfish get their name from having a silvery coating on their scale-like exoskeleton. They also have a quick, fishlike wiggle in the way they move.

ARE SILVERFISH SILVER? ARE SILVERFISH RELATED TO FISH?

Silverfish have a silvery coating on their scale-like exoskeleton, but they aren’t actually silver, and they’re not related to fish at all.

We just signed up with Fox. They were extremely professional, explained the job and all the options for service. Our technician, Dalton, was punctual, professional, and even walked me through the work he performed and areas to be aware of. In addition, he clearly explained next steps and addressed any worries I had. Excellent service all around
