Why should you deal with silverfish?

Dealing with Victoria silverfish in and around your Victoria home is essential for several reasons. While silverfish are not harmful to humans and do not transmit diseases, their presence can become a nuisance. These small, wingless insects are attracted to damp and dark areas, such as bathrooms, basements, and kitchens, where they feed on starchy materials like paper, glue, and fabrics. As they infest your Victoria home, they can cause damage to books, clothing, and other belongings. Moreover, their presence can be unsettling and indicate underlying moisture issues that need to be addressed. By taking proactive measures to eliminate silverfish, you can protect your belongings, prevent further infestations, and maintain a clean and comfortable living environment in Victoria.

A comprehensive, personalized and safe approach

Step 1: Comprehensive Inspection and Identification

Our experienced Victoria technicians conduct a thorough and detailed inspection of your Victoria property to identify all areas affected by silverfish infestation. This includes examining common hiding spots such as basements, bathrooms, kitchens, and storage areas. By understanding the extent of the problem, we can develop a targeted treatment plan to effectively eliminate silverfish and prevent future infestations.

Step 2: Preparation and Cleanup

Before the treatment, our Victoria team provides clear guidelines to prepare your home for optimal treatment efficacy. This includes removing small articles around the baseboard, such as kids' toys and pet dishes, to ensure proper coverage during the application. We also advise emptying out areas underneath sinks and closet floors to facilitate effective treatment. By ensuring proper preparation, we enhance the effectiveness of the treatment and minimize any disruptions.

Step 3: Targeted Treatment with Permethrin Spray and Organic Dust

Based on the inspection findings and after the preparation is complete, we use a combination of Permethrin spray and organic dust to target silverfish effectively. The Permethrin spray is applied to key areas where silverfish are present, providing immediate control by eliminating them on contact. Additionally, we use organic dust in pipe chases and electrical outlets, as these areas are common entry points for silverfish. The organic dust provides long-lasting protection, ensuring that silverfish are repelled and unable to reinfest your Victoria home.

Step 4: Safety Precautions and Temporary Vacating

As safety is our top priority, we take necessary precautions during the treatment process. Due to the chemical applications involved, we advise you and your pets to temporarily vacate your Victoria home for 4 to 5 hours after the spray treatment. For individuals with specific health concerns, pregnancies, or preschool children, we recommend an extended absence of 8 to 10 hours to guarantee complete safety. These precautions ensure that the treatment is conducted responsibly and with minimal impact on your daily routine.
