Information on Silverfish
Silverfish are attracted to any material that contains starch or polysaccharides. This means that they will find and eat the glue and bindings or books, as well as the paper itself.
While their impact on our health is not a major issue, they can do a lot of damage to our keepsakes, legal documents, fabrics such as tapestries and so on.
In order to preserve your books and other documents from attack, it is essential to maintain an environment that is not too humid, and to eliminate any hiding places they might be drawn to.
Advanced Pest Control can also lay down bait to lure them and then eliminate them.
It is essential to find and remove the adult, as the eggs are difficult to destroy.
