Hi Folks: I have a big silverfish problem with the little critters going
everywhere. Is there any advice you can give for getting rid of them short
of tenting the house like you do for termites? Thanks ..Donnamaria
You actually have two problems. The silverfish problem you already know
about. The problem you don't know about is where they are getting their food.
Most likely, you have a moisture problem somewhere, and you need to correct
that as well as getting rid of the silverfish.
Any pyrethrin-based insecticide will kill them. But you should also try to
find out where the moisture is coming from, and fix that. Where do you find
the silverfish? Attic, kitchen, bathroom, basement,... ?

I agree with this statement about the moisture, but you can use any Boric
Acid Roach Powder, to kill Silver Fish, Ants, Roaches, Bed Bugs, ect, ect.
The boric acid is non-toxic to humans and common household pets.
