Fast and effective silverfish control for London & the South East

Silverfish are common pests affecting homes across London and the South East. They are usually found in bathrooms and kitchens due to their fondness for damp areas. While not pleasant, silverfish can be useful in that they generally indicate you have a damp issue that needs attention. We are able to treat the silverfish to remove them from your home but the underlying damp issues ultimately need to be resolved in order to prevent them from coming back.

How do I know if I have a silverfish problem?

If you think you’ve spotted signs of a silverfish infestation, you’re in the right place. This quick guide to silverfish will help you determine if it is in fact silverfish you are dealing with.

The only real way of knowing if you have silverfish are by seeing them. They are nocturnal in habit, but often get trapped on smooth surfaces like bathtubs.

These silver-grey, wingless insects grow to around 12mm long. They are often found in damp areas such as in kitchens and bathrooms. They lay their eggs in cracks and crevices, and the nymphs grow by an indefinite number of moults. Adults can live for over three years.

At Beaver we practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This is a sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools in a way that minimises economic, health, and environmental risks.

We follow the following 5 steps:

  • Inspection – In line with the CRRU guidance, ensuring a through survey is carried out is essential. This will be a full environmental assessment identifying: pest infestations, access points, sources of food, water & harbourage, proofing options, and any external factors which could result in pest infestations i.e overgrown vegetation.
  • Exclusion – Proofing recommendations will always be given by our technicians when identified. 
  • Restriction – Restricting the sources of food, water and harbourage will make your home less appealing for pests and can be an effective way to prevent re-infestation.
  • Destruction – This is what is says, destroying pests that do manage to find their way into your home. We use commercial-grade insecticides safely and in accordance with the label to ensure full control. 
  • Communicate – Communication is perhaps one of the most important parts of the process as a whole. At every stage of this process our technicians will be communicating their actions and importantly the reasons for their actions for you. Explaining the importance of exclusion and restriction will in the long term benefit you as you will reduce the risk of repeated infestations. It is very important that the recommendations the technicians provide are followed to support you in having a pest-free home.
