Silverfish Infestation as Temps Rise
When it comes to Florida pests, they are one of our most intimidating insects. These insects are not considered a threat to humans, as they do not sting or spread disease. However, without Silverfish Treatment you can have damage to your personal belongings, especially paper ones. They are typically found in high humidity environments with temperatures between 72°F–81°F.
This is the time of year the you may start seeing them in a dark moist area of your home. Most likely, the bathroom or closets with cardboard boxes stored in them. Pay attention to old books you may have stored, they love to feed on them and could ruin a favorite collectible.
Silverfish Treatment Reasons
These pests are not dangerous to humans but, they can attract more dangerous insects to your home, cause damage to your belongings, and even cause allergies in some people. For these reasons, silverfish infestations should be taken seriously.
Like other insects, these critters go where the food source is. Sometimes they are found in unopened food packages, or in bathtubs, where they have fallen and cannot get out. A homeowner who sees them in one or two areas in the house, does not necessarily have an infestation but, silverfish treatment is needed.
Silverfish prefer places that have little airflow, which is why cardboard boxes are perfect hiding places. You might also find them in your bathroom. This particular insect thrives in high humidity areas so, when you steam up the bathroom after a hot shower, you provide the perfect environment. They typically feed on items high in protein like: sugar, starch, or paper with glue… or clothing with starch.
