Take a look at how we control and treat silverfish
A certified silverfish exterminator will inspect the property and provide treatment recommendations based on the type and level of infestation.
Spraying a commercial-grade insecticide is sufficient for small and mild silverfish infestations. A severe silverfish infestation requires multiple visits.
Two follow-up visits are free if you've booked a full silverfish treatment. If necessary, the exterminator will return to re-treat the property again.
Once the silverfish are completely eradicated, the exterminator will provide you with a written report. Silverfish prevention tips will also be provided.
What clients are saying
Getting rid of silverfish infestation is easier with professional pest control
Silverfish do not bite or transmit diseases to humans, so they are considered non-harmful. Although silverfish aren't dangerous, they are still pests, and if your property is infested, you should act immediately. Silverfish may not bite, but they can still cause problems, such as:
- Damage to your property;
- Contaminating your food;
- Silverfish can damage books, stored food, and clothing;
Although professional treatments can be highly effective, maintaining good sanitation practices and addressing moisture issues in your home are crucial for long-term silverfish prevention.

Silverfish Control FAQ
Q: How to get rid of silverfish?
A: Boric acid is the fastest way to get rid of silverfish. Natural substances like this powder are powerful weapons against insects. Neither silverfish nor their eggs will survive.
Q: What is the best deterrent for silverfish?
A: Buy borax and spread a thin layer wherever silverfish are visible. This is particularly effective on the backs of cabinets, along baseboards, inside closets, and beneath appliances.
Q: How much silverfish exterminators cost?
A: The cost of silverfish removal depends on the size and extent of the infestation. However, if the infestation is extensive, you can expect £180 and £200. A pest control professional will take several hours to spray or treat your property.
Q: Will a dehumidifier get rid of silverfish?
A: Silverfish thrive in moist, humid environments, so your first step will be to eliminate their preferred habitat. To repel silverfish, make sure your home has a safe and comfortable humidity level of 30-50%. You can keep silverfish away by using a dehumidifier.
Q: What scent keeps silverfish away?
A: Silverfish are repulsed by the smell of citrus, cinnamon, and lavender. The best way to keep them away is to use essential oils to clean your home. Spices and herbs with strong scents have been known to repel silverfish, such as bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, or sachets containing dried rosemary.
Q: What spray kills silverfish?
A: One of the easiest ways to fight a silverfish infestation is to use insecticide sprays. We recommend combining a quick knockdown spray with a long-lasting residual spray to get the best results. Insecticides specifically designed for silverfish control usually contain Permethrin, Tetramethrin, or Cypermethrin ingredients.
