How To Get Rid Of The Silverfish Bug

The silverfish bug loves very warm and humid conditions. They thrive in tropical and subtropical climates. In the house they definitely like bathrooms for this reason. You can use air conditioners and dehumidifiers to reduce humidity inside the house.

It’s best not to leave stacks of old newspapers and cardboard boxes inside, which gives silverfish a ready food supply. Also, keep items they like to eat up off the floor.silverfish pest

Thorough vacuuming of any rooms where infestation has occurred can also help remove the silverfish bug.
