Silverfish Control

Silverfish have powerful teeth that can chew through clothing, paper, wallpaper, and even materials in your home. They’re annoyances at best, and when they’re at their worst, they can even damage treasured family relics such as irreplaceable photographs!

They do not spread bacteria or diseases that are harmful to you or your family, but their excrement can have an unpleasant odor. Silverfish infestations aren’t time-sensitive, but they’re still a problem you’ll want to address.

We offer the following silverfish treatment packages:

We inspect for the presence of general pests whenever we visit your house for any of our services, so we’re always on the lookout for silverfish! We utilize a professional grade insecticide along the exterior of your home and along the interior perimeter as well to fully treat for silverfish (along your skirting boards).

To control silverfish, hire a professional team (like us!) because we also employ a fine dust treatment around water sources and hard-to-reach regions. Silverfish can lurk behind dishwashers, behind sink cabinets, in drains, and in laundry areas, making them tough to control if we don’t pay special attention to these locations.

Why Are Silverfish Such a Problem?

  • They’ll eat everything you own.
  • They can be found practically anywhere in your house, although they favor dark, undisturbed regions like walls, roofs, and below furniture.
  • They consume your meal! Silverfish are particularly fond of starchy meals like cereals and grains, as well as the boxes in which they are housed.
  • During the day, they conceal and feed at night.
  • They’re extraordinarily quick and nimble, and they can even detach the scales on their backs to flee predators!
  • Silverfish have a four-year lifespan.

How You Can Prevent and Control Silverfish

  • Inspect any secondhand things for pests, including silverfish, before bringing them into your home. Pay special attention to:
    – Books
    – Clothing
    – Bedding
    – Furniture
  • Keep your books, papers, and clothing in areas that are bright and well-ventilated as much as possible.
  • Maintain a clean environment in your home, particularly in the kitchen.
  • Foods that are starchy should be stored in airtight plastic containers to avoid becoming an enticing food source for silverfish.
  • Remember that items left in the back corners of cupboards and closets, where they are rarely disturbed, are great targets for silverfish to establish a home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our pest control services are safe for you, your family and your pets. All of our technicians are trained and licensed pest control technicians, who only use the best and safest products that have been approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority.

During our services, we use only the safest techniques and practices to ensure the safety of your loved ones. To do this, the following precautions are to be observed:

  • If you or a family member is particularly sensitive or suffers from allergic reactions, we recommend that person remains out of the home until the product has dried.
  • Protect or remove any pets from the treatment area until the product has dried.
  • Avoid contact with the treated surfaces until the product has dried.
  • Cover all food items and utensils prior to treatment.

You get what you pay for. Most budget providers work on volume, and so they have to complete their jobs quickly, and usually with a ‘one-product-fits-all’ approach. The end result may not be tailored to your home and situation, leaving you with less effective treatment that won’t last all year.

Here at Benchmark Pest Solutions, we pride ourselves on high quality thorough work, and providing an outstanding customer experience. We know how important it is to feel safe, comfortable and relaxed in your own home. To ensure this, we spend more time on your property treating more areas, and use a greater number of products to create a more effective and longer lasting treatment.

We’ve designed our own tailorable methods of treatment that give our customers the most effective service possible. In each treatment we use a number of different specialised products that work together to create a compounding effect that provides a high quality and longer lasting treatment. Because we are more detailed, thorough, and use a combination of premium products, we can confidently offer our 12 month pest free guarantee.

Short answer: The products we use are safe for you and your little one.

Long answer: How do we know they are safe? Before a product can be sold as a pesticide in Australia, it first must be approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority. If, for example, a product was harmful to pregnant women and still was approved for use as a pesticide and a pest control company chose to use it (we would not); a warning would have to be printed on the label and on the product’s Safety Data Sheet.

Therefore, we know that our products are safe for pregnant women because there are no warnings on the labels or the safety data sheets of any of our products. We are also in constant contact with our chemical supplier, who would advise us immediately if anything were to change.

If you still are not convinced, we won’t be offended if you prefer to leave the premises while we conduct the service at your home. What matters most to us is that you feel comfortable during an exciting time of your life.

Unless you are particularly sensitive or suffer from allergic reactions, there is no need for you to leave your home during our pest treatment. However, if you would like to leave, that is absolutely fine too.

Ideally, you would be home to meet our pest technician and advise of any problem areas or concerns. After that, it’s really a personal choice if you want to stay or leave.

Yes, we do! Any person with a Queensland Seniors Card will receive a 20% discount on all services that exceed our minimum call out fee, with the exception of Termite Prevention; both physical and chemical barriers. We will also recognise Seniors Cards from other Australian States.
