Silverfish are characteristically .5 to 1 inch long. The fish-like appearance of the abdomens along with the swimming motion of their bodies when they run has given them the name of silverfish. These insects are completely wingless and have long antennae.
Living up to eight years, these small greyish metallic insects consume starches and dextrin found in adhesives. Because of this, they can damage book bindings, carpet, and clothing. Also, they have been known to eat wallpaper to get to the glue. Silverfish are nocturnal and require humid climates. In homes, they are found in bathtubs, sinks, kitchens, old books, and attics. While they do not transmit disease, they are responsible for contaminating food and causing damage to household goods. Due to these facts, they are classified as a household pest.

Crown Pest Control has been the best pest service I’ve used. They are reliable, friendly, and cost-effective. The spray they use is nothing short of a miracle. Ever since the first spray, we have been bug-free. Safe for my kids and pets too.
Two visits over four months from a major nation exterminator made no impact in the mouse/rat problem we had. One visit from Crown and the only mouse we’ve seen or heard since dropped dead in the middle of the floor. Fast, courteous, knowledgeable and efficient.
Solid guys! Always on time or early, easy to schedule, and receptive to treating for whichever bugs are around. They came recommended from my realtor, and I have been very pleased with their work ethic.
