Have you ever seen a creepy looking white bug crawling around your home? You may have silverfish in your midst. Silverfish are small pests that are known for destroying papers (like books, newspapers, bills, etc.), clothing, and bedding. These tiny pests can turn into a big problem if not taken care of. Here are a few ways to stop silverfish from taking over your home.
Reduce Humidity to Help Stop Silverfish
Unfortunately for South Florida homeowners, most pests, like silverfish, love humidity. In fact, they thrive in it. If you want to stop silverfish, it’s time to invest in a good dehumidifier and pay attention to leaky pipes or any other places where moisture may be building your home.
Store Your Food Properly
Silverfish love dry goods. Make sure to seal up any food that may tempt them like cereal, grains, pasta, flour, sugar and pet food. The last thing you want is to find one of these creepy crawlers in your bowl of cereal one morning.
Clean Up Old Papers
If you start seeing silverfish in your home, it’s time to declutter. Silverfish seek refuge in books, magazines, and any papers you may have laying around. These pests are especially prone to hiding in papers that can be found in places with high humidity like attics or cabinets.
