While they are not a major problem, the site of them does make some people squirm. Silverfish live in dark areas and feed on high starch content materials like books and photos.
As a pest they are relatively easy to control and form part of our general pest control treatments which includes the roof, subfloor and all skirting boards which is important for the treatment of silverfish.
It is unlikely the general household would have the right equipment to successfully treat a silverfish infestation, especially when it comes to treating amongst those valuable books and photos. This is why it is important to call a professional pest controller like Aussie Professional Pest Control.
