Silverfish

cindylou123April 17, 2006

Over the last few weeks I have noticed some silverfish.

Live in the NorthEast - and the temperatures are now turning to spring and occasionally warm.

Have a two story townhouse. One of the bathrooms upstairs is not used at all - I found a few silverfish on the floor in that bathroom. But also killed a few downstairs (alive) on the wall near the front door and front windows.

I don't see any moisture/leaks that could cause them, nor do the bathroom fixtures seem to have any leaks.

- any suggestions of where to look? or what to do?

One suggestion I was given was to flush the toilets (with some clorox cleaner) upstairs a few times a week - even if not used -- as they could be coming in via the water pipes there.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Sorry, silverfish don't come in via the water pipes, at least not from the interior of the water pipes.
