There are only four families of silverfish found worldwide, consisting of about 370 species. In Australia, just two of these families are represented with 28 species present.
Silverfish flourish in our local climate and can quickly become an infestation problem. Silverfish are commonly found in Coffs Harbour, Grafton and Port Macquarie. In fact, they’re pretty common within all of the Mid North Coast.
Try to keep areas uncluttered and clean. This will limit the possible number of crevices and breeding areas. Freezing can kill silverfish but will not necessarily kill their eggs.
Complete Pest Control use non-toxic Borax or Boric acid and sugar solution to kill silverfish.
To capture silverfish, leave a whole peeled potato or a wet cloth with plaster on it overnight next to the areas known to harbour silverfish. Early the next morning, quickly dispose of the potato or cloth with the silverfish attached.
