How to keep silverfish away

Silverfish’s Usual Hiding Place

  • Kitchens or Bathroom- under sinks and kitchen cabinets
  • Laundry area – behind wallpaper, window or door frames
  • Storage areas – in storage boxes, bookcases, old stacks of newspapers and magazines

What to look out for

  • Silverfish are attracted to damp areas with 75% - 95% humidity, hence it is recommended to reduce the humidity with dehumidifiers and fans.

  • Seal cracks and crevices on walls, floors, and holes around pipes to deter silverfish’s entrance.

  • Keep closed rooms ventilated.

  • Regularly inspect and tidy up your storage areas and look out for any sign of damages caused by silverfish.
