How to identify and control silverfish?

Silverfish is an insect that has long, flattened, and slender and brown silver bodies. It is quite broad at the front and gradually taper down to the rear end.  You can easily find silverfish in any part of the country. But it is often seen in areas high in heat and humidity, like bathtubs. Silverfish eat grains present in your pantry, but they can also chew holes in clothing’s, upholstery or stored documents. To prevent silverfish infestation, it is recommended to eliminate all possible sources where excessive moisture is present, like condensation areas, faulty plumbing and much more. Silverfish prefer humidity; therefore, with a dehumidifier, you can reduce the moisture content in the air, which is essential for the growth of silverfish. But if it has made itself at home in your house, it is hard to control the situation. It is recommended to call professional support once you know about the presence of silverfish in the property.
