Silverfish Pest Control Service

Discovering silverfish in your home or business can be unsettling. These small, silver-scaled insects are not only unsightly but can also cause damage to books, clothing, and other starchy materials. At Pest Solutions Dublin, we specialise in effective silverfish pest control to safeguard your property and bring you peace of mind.

Understanding Silverfish: What Are They?

Silverfish, scientifically known as Lepisma saccharina, are wingless insects that derive their name from their silvery appearance and their fish-like, wriggling movements. Typically found in dark, damp areas, silverfish thrive in environments with high humidity. Their diet primarily consists of carbohydrates, sugars, and starches, making them attracted to paper, glue, clothing, and food debris.
