In the UK there are 3 different types of silverfish that you may encounter. These are the common silverfish (lepisma saccharinum), the firebrat (thermobia domestica) or the grey silverfish (ctenolepisma longicaudatum). The grey silverfish is the newest addition to UK silverfish species as previously it was only the common silverfish and firebrat that would be found in the UK.
Silverfish consume cellulose and polysaccharides such as the starches and dextrin that are found in adhesives. This gives them a wide range of meals to choose from. Items such as clothing, book bindings, carpet, dandruff, coffee, some paints, glue, hair, photos, paper & plaster. They will even cause damage to wallpaper when trying to get to wallpaper paste underneath.
Silverfish are miniscule in size and can therefore find their way into many different areas. Attics, basements, bathtubs, sinks, kitchens, old books, classrooms and showers are all likely to be places to find silverfish.
You cannot be bitten or poisoned by silverfish so they are not capable of harming you physically. They are capable of causing damage to walls and aspects of a building as well as possessions within the building too. The oil of a Japanese cedar tree, ‘cryptomeria japonica’ works as an effective repellent.
If you have discovered silverfish in your property then it will become evident very quickly that, despite their name, silverfish do not in fact have anything to do with fish.
They have gained their name because of their unique shape and bodily movements. A silverfish’s body tapers towards it’s abdomen giving it the likeness of a fish and when they move in a back and forth motion it makes them resemble a fish.
Silverfish cannot harm you as their teeth are designed for scraping against their food and are not strong enough to pierce human skin.
Even if a silverfish were able to pierce the skin they do not possess any poisonous qualities and are not carriers of disease either.

Our teams of highly trained pest controllers will carefully pack up a van full of specialist tools and hurry to your location at a time of your choosing. On arrival, we’ll discuss the issues you are having in detail and make sure we know everything about the pest infestation. Many pests can be dealt with in one masterful strike, carefully taken care of in one treatment.
However, more stubborn pests may require our experts to return for multiple visits, equipped with an array of advanced technologies that will have pests running on sight. This callout fee covers the costs of our experts time, and is a minimum cost that may increase based on the severity of the problem.
If we assess the situation, and the cost of the full treatment is out of your price range right now, you can cancel the treatment and only pay the £90 (inc. VAT) for the inspection visit and the advice you will get from our professional team.
