Silverfish eating your books and clothes again? Even though they don’t harm humans, they’re ability to damage things around your home is frustrating. Who wants creepy crawly creatures living inside their home, especially ones that never seem to go away? Here at Fox Pest Control, we believe your home (and your belongings) should belong to you and only you.

Silverfish might come into the open near windows, or they can even fall out of light fixtures when they infiltrate attics or roofs.
Silverfish can eat books, wooden chess sets, wallpaper, or natural fibers in clothing like cotton. These can appear as holes, wormlike trails, or chewing marks.

Most likely, the silverfish came from the soil around your house. Something may have happened to make them want to come inside. 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.
Although silverfish don’t bite, they can contaminate your food, and they can certainly be a big nuisance. Once they get inside the house, they can eat the walls, an old chess set, or even the carpet.

We have never needed pest control in the past and we randomly called Fox. We couldn't be happier with Phil the technician that came to service our home. Phil was extremely knowledgeable, thorough and patient. He answered all of our questions and put us at ease. If all of Fox's technicians are like Phil then you'll be in good hands.

We've been using FOX for the last few years for seasonal pest maintenance. Every time we see some sort of pest activity outside our regular seasonal treatment, they come quick and take care of it. The workers are always kind and courteous and answer my questions and concerns. We've recommended this company to a number of family and friends who have also used FOX for treatment.
