Silverfish are annoying little pests that can be found all over the world. They prefer humid locations, making your shower drain prime real estate. Silverfish are primitive creatures, dating back hundreds of millions of years. They are adaptable and more than capable of surviving off of the contents of your home or attic. Silverfish aren’t dangerous to humans, but they can cause property damage in unexpected ways. If you locate one or more of these little nuisances, give us a call over at Buckeye Wildlife Solutions. We’re happy to solve your pest problems — just dial (844) 544-9453.

Our Silverfish Removal Services – The BWS Advantage

The difficulty in removing populations of silverfish is in their reproductive speed and nocturnal nature. Silverfish operate at nighttime, often crawling around in sinks, drains, and around your floors in search of food. This makes them difficult to spot, and they are very quick to escape if they sense a threat. Often times, it is impossible to determine just how many silverfish are in an infesting population.

Female silverfish are capable of laying anywhere from 2 to 20 eggs per day. The eggs can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months to hatch. There is huge potential for exponential growth with silverfish, so it is necessary to handle any issues as quickly as possible. Each situation will be unique, and it is best to devise a plan that will fit the needs of your specific property. Only those with the necessary training and knowledge will be able to devise such a plan.

Silverfish Background & Biology

Silverfish can be found almost anywhere in the world. They are located on all continents and each of the United States. Ohio has a somewhat humid climate, making a perfect breeding ground for silverfish. They prefer humidity, usually somewhere in the range of 75% to 95%. Their ability to survive in moist conditions drives them to gather in wet places like your plumbing. Silverfish may be spotted crawling in and out of sinks, drains, and other piping around or outside of your home. You will probably catch them crawling around your floor, though.

Silverfish are small, primitive creatures. They range in size from 0.5 to 1 inch long at maturity and can live from 2 to 8 years. The name “silverfish” comes from their fish-like appearance and their fluidity in the way they move. They are very quick — capable of escaping predators like spiders, but they can only move effectively on horizontal surfaces. Of course, this makes our floors perfect for running on.

Silverfish are not dangerous to humans, so don’t panic if you see them. They can, however, destroy your property: eating through anything sugary as well as wallpaper, fabric, and even paper. Silverfish are capable of laying up to 20 eggs per day, making it imperative that you have them removed immediately.

A professional wildlife removal service will be able to handle your issue fully and quickly. Buckeye Wildlife Solutions’ staff is fully trained and licensed to handle silverfish removal. Call Buckeye Wildlife Solutions at (844) 544-9453 for expert removal service!

Can I Try to Remove Silverfish Myself?

We do not recommend trying to remove silverfish on your own. They aren’t dangerous to touch, but without effectively exterminating all silverfish present, you risk allowing the numbers to grow even larger. Remember, they can reproduce at a rate of 20 per day! Effective removal will require a professional assessment of the situation, and often requires check-ups to monitor the progress. Silverfish removals are usually not a one-time ordeal. Our staff’s knowledge of behavioral patterns and situational recognition allows us to develop the supremely effective extermination plans.
