Identification: Silverfish are 1/2 - 3/4" long with a teardrop/carrot-shaped body. They are silvery/gray in color with 3 long bristle-like appendages extending from their posterior end.

Habits: Silverfish prefer warm and humid areas to habitat. They can be found living in tight cracks and crevices throughout a structure. Silverfish usually hide during the day and are most active at night. They will travel great distances in search of food feeding on mold, protein, and starch-based materials such as cereals, paper, flour, and wallpaper.

Control: The best method to control Silverfish is a thorough exterior treatment and light hand spraying key areas along the interior. Monroe Pest Control Inc. specializes in riding these insects from your home or business. We offer free estimates and a full warranty upon completion of services!
