If you have silverfish in your home, you may have a host of other bugs and pests as well that you may be wondering how to get rid of. Silverfish are small insects that are silver in color, thus their name, and it walks almost like a fish swims. They do have small legs that can be seen as well. Most are in the range of an inch to half an inch in length, and these bugs are common to the middle Georgia area, including area like the ones we live in: Perry GA, Cordele GA, Americus GA, and Fitzgerald GA. Many times they can be found in bathroom areas, as they like humid, moist environments. You may find them near the shower or the tub drain, as they are often seen there. They can also be found in your kitchen cupboards, basements, laundry rooms, attics and areas underneath sinks, where moisture collects. There are some things that you can do to get rid of these pests, so we would like to leave you with some tips to help you be rid of them.
To get rid of silverfish, and many other common pests, follow the following instructions:
Eliminate Places where they enter the home. They often come in where pipes enter the home, or sometimes where electrical wiring comes in as well. If you seal these areas up tight with caulk or similar, it can make a radical difference in the number of bugs and pests that are able to enter your home.
Alter the Conditions in Your Home. Silverfish parcticularly like it humid and moist. If you use a dehumidifier, or make sure that the towels in your bathroom dry completely, it can remove the places they thrive in-- and thus, they will find other more suitable environments, outside of your home-- or they die from a less than favorable environment.
If you're worried about these bugs biting you or your family members, they do not bite, so you don't have to worry, however they are often a nuissance if you don't like bugs in your house.
