Greenville, SC Silverfish Control Professionals

Action Pest Services provides treatment for silverfish. Silverfish are small, metallic-looking, fast running insects that sometimes can be found in humid, wet areas of the home, like bathrooms. Silverfish are common throughout the United States but their elusiveness can make them hard to detect. Silverfish can feed on the surfaces of your home and waste can build up creating stains on ceilings and floors. Although silverfish are not harmful to humans, an infestation can be unsightly and annoying.

Silverfish Identification

There are several characteristics that help identify a silverfish.

  • Silverfish are usually between 12 mm and 19 mm in length.
  • Silverfish are commonly silver or brown in color.
  • Silverfish have long, slender, tear-drop shaped bodies with six legs and antenna.
  • Images of silverfish can be found from the National Pest Management Association ยป

Conducive Conditions for Silverfish

There are a few conditions that can increase the chances of a silverfish infestation:

  • Plants that cause shady, moist areas and excess vegetation or mulch around the home.
  • Warm, humid areas with excess moisture near food sources, especially bathrooms or basements.
  • Cracks in the foundation, siding, or window panes that serve as points of entry and allow insects to come in to the home.

Silverfish Control Tips for Homeowners

There are several things homeowners can do to prevent and reduce silverfish infestations:

  • Trim back or remove plants that cause shady, moist areas and excess vegetation or mulch around the home.
  • Repair and dehumidify any areas of the home with excess, built-up moisture.
  • Inspect the exterior of your home, including the foundation, siding, windows, and doorways regularly to ensure there are no points of entry.


A silverfish infestation can quickly increase and become a permanent issue. If you have had more than a single outdoor sighting or are already seeing these pests in your garage or home call Action Pest Services for a customized treatment plan.
