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. 


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 from future infestations.

Exterminator providing silverfish treatment

Unlike 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!

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 to pay between £150 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.
