Fast and Discreet Silverfish Treatment in London

silverfish treatment LondonUnlike most crawling pests, silverfish are not considered dangerous to a person’s health, as they do not bite or transmit diseases. However, they are still a pest, and if you are a victim of a silverfish infestation, immediate action must be taken. They might not bite you or your family but silverfish can still cause some problems, such as:

  • Damage to your property;
  • Contaminating your food;
  • Damage to your belongings while they feast on various adhesive substances.

Don’t waste any time and leave the professionals of Fantastic Pest Control to take care of your silverfish problem!

See How Our Silverfish Treatment Works


First, a Fantastic exterminator inspects your property. The goal is to determine the type and level of infestation, and to suggest an effective treatment method.


For small and mild infestations, spraying with commercial-grade insecticide is enough. For severe infestation, heat treatment is needed. Same-day treatments are possible.


If you've booked a full treatment, you can request two free follow-up visits. The exterminator can come back to inspect and treat the property again if there's a need.


When the silverfish are fully eradicated, the technician will give you a written report about the treatment. You will also receive some useful tips for protecting your home.
