I have been battling these annoying bugs for over a year now. I am currently working with my second exterminating company with little success. Your article on how to get rid of these bugs was very helpful but I am not sure if I can tackle this problem. If my service company can’t solve it, how can I? What should I do?
As explained in our SILVERFISH CONTROL ARTICLE, this pest can be persistent and annoying. Since they tend to live in hidden spaces somewhere between the outside and inside of the home, it can be hard to pinpoint the exact location to treat. And since treating them where they nest is usually the only way to get rid of them for all, complete control can be a long and arduous path. But it is achievable.
If you’ve read our article, you know what must be done. I suggest you either talk with your service company to see if they are willing to go the extra distance to solve your problem. If you feel they aren’t living up to their end of the contract, give us a call to discuss doing this work yourself. I’m 100% if you follow our guidelines you’ll be able to substantially reduce the problem. And if we’re able to help you find the nest locations so they get treated properly, they’ll be gone for good.
