  • Silverfish in your home – Orange County

    Most likely you have Silverfish in your home. We all do. Silverfish are also know as: Lepisma saccharina, frequently called a silverfish or fishmoth, and is a small, wingless insect. Its common name derives from the animal’s silvery light grey and blue colour, combined with the fish-like appearance of its movement.

    “We had a crazy silverfish problem in our laundry room. Preferred Pest Control removed them with ease” Cindy E. Fountain Valley, CA.

    Silverfish are nocturnal insects about 13–25 mm long.  Their abdomens taper at the end, giving them a fish-like appearance. Silverfish are harmless to humans so don’t worry (they do not bite or sting).

    Silverfish like areas that are warm, moist and dark. Typically you find them in garages, closets, basement, laundry room, under sinks etc. They enjoy eating things like: old books, cardboard, trash, press board, debris, loose paper, and rough or scratched linens.
