Best Silverfish Control Experts

Silverfish pest control in Ireland is an important part of ownership for your home and business. Silverfish are found in moist, humid areas of your home and business including bathrooms and basements. Silverfish get their name from their silver and metallic appearance, as well as the fact that they’re shaped—and move—like fish. To protect your Dublin home or business, you need to learn about the behavior of this pest, take steps for prevention, and find effective methods of silverfish extermination should an infestation occur.


What are Silverfish?

Pest control experts at Magee Pest Control explain silverfish are small, wingless insects that move fast because of their flattened bodies and carrot or teardrop shape. Most species of silverfish are typically silver or gunmetal in color, have long antennae, and scales. Silverfish are also known as “bristletails” because they have three appendages that are long and shaped like bristles in the rear portion of their body. Silverfish are nocturnal insects, so they can hide easily, making their infestation go unnoticed.


How to Keep Silverfish Away


  1. Silverfish are attracted to damp areas with 75% – 95% humidity, hence it is recommended to reduce the humidity with dehumidifiers and fans.
  2. Seal cracks and crevices on walls, floors, and holes around pipes to deter silverfish’s entrance.
  3. Keep closed rooms ventilated.
  4. Regularly inspect and tidy up your storage areas and look out for any sign of damages caused by silverfish.
