Damage Due To Silverfish Infestation

Silverfish is a wingless insect with silvery scales. Some silverfish species are adapted to human dwelling, posing threats to the healthy condition of the environment. Though these pests do not bite humans, it can make a number of ill-effects to your environment.
  • Silverfish feed and damage various personal things at properties, including books, documents, clothes, leather, painting, wallpapers, and more.
  • They access the kitchen and dining area, run over food, and spoil it with droppings and silvery scales.
  • Silverfish is a nuisance to the healthy environment of a property. Often, the presence of the pest at properties is considered as the lack of maintenance, and people do not feel welcomed to such properties.
  • Studies confirm that silverfish and their scales can trigger asthma attacks in some people.
