Silverfish Pest Control Springfield, Missouri

Silverfish are small, bluish-silver, wingless insects with a hard exoskeleton. They are usually about an inch and a half in length, and they look and move similarly to a fish. They lay eggs at all times of the year, growing from larva to adult stage in 3 or 4 months. They feed on mold, fungi and carbohydrates – meaning your food (especially dry food), clothing, shampoo, soap, books, wallpaper, shelf-liner, plants and many other things in your home are fodder for silverfish to move in and take over. Their preferred habitat is bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, attics and basements, and are usually found in and under sinks, bathtubs, in storage boxes, bookcases, old stacks of papers (magazines, newspapers, etc.), on closet shelves, behind wallpaper, wall voids, window or door frames, and baseboards. Silverfish love the taste of starch in book bindings, paper on which there is glue or paste, various fabrics, bathroom products, cereals, flour, crumbs and plant materials. 

Silverfish are not easy to kill. They hide in dark, protected places, and they reproduce at an alarming rate. Being nocturnal they may go undetected for a long time. Most home-owners don’t realize they are existent until they see the cast skins, tiny pepper-like feces, or signs of feeding damage, such as small holes in wallpaper, clothing and dried food boxes, and by the yellowish stains on fabric. By this time the infestation is well established.

There are two principal ways of silverfish pest control: natural and chemical. Your expert pest control professionals will provide you with information about both types of treatment and make recommendations based on their knowledge and experience. Addressing a silverfish infestation swiftly is extremely important because they reproduce very fast and are much more intrusive than most people think.

Pest Control During Winter

Pest Control During Winter

Pests start looking at our homes during the fall months as the perfect winter getaway. Just because there have been freezing temperatures outside does not mean that these pests are already living inside the walls of your home. They are unaffected by the temperatures outside. Insects can thrive inside during winter months because the weather is tolerable on the inside.

If you have pets inside the house, make sure that the pet food is kept in sealed containers. Rodents find their way inside by all entry points that aren’t sealed off.  Branches making contact with your house can help pests get in through your roof. Make sure to trim them, making an invisible barrier. Winter pest control means tightening up your home.

“Remember that invasive pests want to be indoors during the winter just like you do!”

When Expert Pest Solutions is called for winter pest control services, we come to your home and perform a thorough inspection, inside and out, ensuring no pest related issues are present, and also identify any conditions you may have that increase the risk of future pest problems. Inspecting your home during winter months is crucial for lasting protection and getting your home ready for the emergence of pests in the spring.
