So How Can You Eliminate Silverfish Safely?
It's actually fairly easy to get rid of silverfish without using poison. While it may seem that silverfish can live forever, they are actually fairly suspicious and easily frightened. So if you know the right things to do, you can repel them away from your home.
1) Decrease the Humidity
Silverfish require a high humidity environment in order to survive. This will explain why you can normally find them in the damp places within your home (such as bathrooms, kitchens, and basements). If you can lower the humidity in these places to around 50% or less, the silverfish will begin to seek new places to live.
2) Increase the Light
Besides high humidity, silverfish also prefer low light. In fact, silverfish will not come out unless it is completely dark. So another way you can keep silverfish away is by opening blinds during the day and by leaving a light on during the night. Remember, you may wish to use an eco-friendly light bulb to save on energy costs.
3) Keep Your Home Clean
Ok, silverfish are not going to leave if your house isn't dirty, but when there is more clutter it gives the silverfish more places to hide. So by keeping things off the floor, you will make the room(s) more open and that will make the silverfish feel less safe.
4) Lure & Trap Remaining Silverfish
A few simple home made traps can capture as many as 30 silverfish at a time, plus some of these traps can literally take 30 seconds to 2 minutes to make. Silverfish are naturally very cautious, so you won't be able to trap more than one or two by waiting for them. But the trap designs in this downloadable silverfish removal guide will give you some of the most effective silverfish trap designs as well as other methods to scare them away from your home.
