Silverfish Prevention Tips for Kensington, MD Residents

Silverfish are moisture seeking pests that are often found living in the high humidity areas of Maryland homes. Inside homes, silverfish are typically found living in bathrooms, basements, laundry rooms, kitchens, and crawl spaces.

Besides being a general nuisance, silverfish can cause damage to clothing, furniture, books, wallpaper and pantry items as they feed.

To deter silverfish from finding their way into your home we always suggest reducing moisture levels in and around your Kensington home.

Inspect the interior and exterior of your home replacing or fixing any leaky faucets, fixtures, or pipes. Trim back overgrown landscaping from the exterior of your home to help dry out the ground around the perimeter of your house.

It is also a good idea to place dehumidifiers in basement areas, make sure that crawl spaces are properly ventilated, and place ventilating fans in all bathrooms.

Another excellent way to prevent tear-dropped shaped, silvery scaled silverfish from choosing your home to live in, is to put into place one of our year-round residential pest control programs. Contact us today to learn more about silverfish and preventing them from causing damages in your Kensington home.
