Manly Warringah Pest Control


SilverfishSilverfish are agile nocturnal insects that generally shun light. They are usually found in dark, undisturbed places but can be found almost anywhere. While frequently found in roof cavities, they may also be found in wall cavities, subfloor areas and many places within the dwelling parts of a home such as bookcases. They feed on most types of human food but seem to prefer starchy materials. When paper or photos are attacked, it is often the outer, shiny layer that is damaged. Book bindings, cottons, linens and wallpaper are also often damaged.
