Silverfish aren’t harmful to humans, but they are harmful to your belongings. Silverfish will find warm, damp spaces inside your Chicago Metro Area home such as basements and crawl spaces. Once inside they will eat starchy materials such as grains, fibers and fabrics. They will eat stored cereal, the glue from book bindings, silk and other textiles. Silverfish get their name from their shiny silver color, and can be identified by the 3 prong antennae on their backside. Once in a home, silverfish can be hard to get rid of and they can multiply quickly. If you have a silverfish infestation in your Chicago Metro Area home, call an exterminator. Fox Pest Control is here to help eliminate silverfish in your home.
You might already know you have a silverfish infestation, but here are a couple of the most common signs silverfish exterminators look for in Chicago Metro Area.

You’ll know you have a silverfish infestation when you start to see chewed on books, wooden chess sets, wallpaper, or natural fibers in clothing like cotton. These can appear as holes, wormlike trails, or chewing marks.

Silverfish are extremely difficult to remove without professional help because they are capable of eating virtually everything. Vacuuming can help scare them out of the open and back into hiding, but ultimately, you’ll want a silverfish extermination solution that can help you feel safe and comfortable in your own home. Call Fox Pest Control today to reclaim your home from these pests.
Most likely, the silverfish came from the soil around your house. Maybe the soil near the house dried out, so they made their way toward a wet spot inside the home to keep from drying out.
You want to get rid of silverfish because although silverfish don’t bite, they can contaminate your food, and they can certainly be a big nuisance. Once they get inside your Chicago Metro Area house, they can eat the walls, an old chess set, or even the carpet.
Silverfish are wingless insects with six legs, two antennae, and three antennae-like structures on their abdomen that look like three tails.

Actually, yes, they are — when they aren’t eating your books, clothes, or walls. These little silvery guys are like the garbage cleanup crew of the world. Since they can eat living or decaying material, they help clean up rotting things, from a dead animal to a fallen tree.
Silverfish get their name from having a silvery coating on their scale-like exoskeleton. They also have a quick, fishlike wiggle in the way they move.
Silverfish have a silvery coating on their scale-like exoskeleton, but they aren’t actually silver, and they’re not related to fish at all.

Jenice and Hayley were the technicians at our house. They were very thorough, explaining everything as they worked. Not only do they know their bugs" but they were very friendly and pleasant to have at our home. We would be happy to have these two again if the scheduling permits. They are a credit to the company. We're looking forward to being "bug-free" when the treatments take full effect!"

A wonderful experience from the start. Sheila was very patient and helpful on the phone and in quickly getting my request to a technician. Tom was able to get to my home within a few hours, and was very professional, friendly and efficient. He explained everything clearly from the pest problems we had to the best solutions, and reassured me of the company's commitment to coming out as often as needed to resolve them. I highly recommend Fox Pest Control.
