    Silverfish Control

    Silverfish are common house pests and can often be found in damp areas, like a bathroom, kitchen, basement, garage, garden shed or attic. Our clients mostly report seeing them on damp clothes and books since silverfish are attracted to cloth and paper.

    Although they are not likely to attack people and pets and seem harmless at first sight, they cause allergies in some people. They are also known for causing damage to personal items since silverfish tend to chew on paper and cloth, creating holes in clothes, books, boxes, etc. Worst of all, if they stick around for too long, silverfish can attract other pests, like carpet beetles

    But how do they appear in your home in the first place? This is a difficult question because they often move in by transporting themselves on your clothes. Household members may be responsible for silverfish appearance without even knowing.

    What you can do when you first notice them around your home is call professional silverfish removal services – and Ulysses Pest Control is the expert you’ve been looking for.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    • Signs of a silverfish infestation include seeing the insects themselves, finding small holes in paper, wallpaper, or clothing, and discovering yellow stains, scales, or feces in areas where silverfish are active. If you notice any of these signs, it's best to contact Ulysses Pest Control for a professional inspection.

    • Silverfish do not bite or transmit diseases to humans, so they are not considered a health risk. However, they can damage property and belongings, and their presence can indicate underlying moisture problems that could lead to other issues.

    • Ulysses Pest Control uses a comprehensive approach to treat silverfish infestations. Our silverfish pest control in Cairns includes an initial inspection to identify the extent of the infestation and the moisture sources attracting silverfish. We then apply targeted treatments, including residual insecticides and baits, to eliminate existing silverfish and prevent future infestations. We also provide recommendations for reducing moisture and improving home ventilation.

    • Yes, the treatments used by Ulysses Pest Control are safe for your family and pets. Our technicians are trained to apply pesticides responsibly and in accordance with all safety guidelines. We use products that are effective against pests but pose minimal risk to humans and animals when used correctly.

    • You should start seeing a reduction in silverfish activity within a few days after treatment. However, complete elimination may take a few weeks as the treatments continue to work and any remaining eggs hatch. Our follow-up visits ensure that the infestation is fully resolved.

    • To prepare for a silverfish treatment, remove any items from the floor and clear areas around baseboards and corners where silverfish might hide. Ensure that areas under sinks and in damp spaces are accessible for inspection and treatment. Follow any specific instructions provided by our technicians to maximise the effectiveness of the treatment.

    • Yes, you can take several steps to prevent silverfish from returning. Keep your home dry by using dehumidifiers, fixing leaks, and improving ventilation. Store dry goods in airtight containers, and reduce clutter to eliminate hiding spots. Regular cleaning and maintenance also help deter silverfish and other pests.

    • While a single treatment can significantly reduce silverfish populations, complete eradication may require multiple treatments, especially in severe infestations. Ulysses Pest Control offers follow-up services to ensure the infestation is fully controlled and to address any new activity.

      Terry the owner has been involved with pest control his whole life.Great service and happy to come back if any problems.Terry looks after his customers.

      Terry was extremely thorough and knowledgeable while also being extremely compassionate towards the critters and creepy crawlys he was here to expunge. While his son Adam was not only easy on the eyes, what he may lack in experience he made up for ten fold in eagerness and professionalism. I highly recommend this friendly yet intrepid Family run business.

      Jana Gorski

      Terry was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Not only did he fit my job in same day, he sent me a text to confirm the job was complete (which was very convenient)AND fixed my gate on the way out! I will definitely be using him in the future.

      In the 15 years I lived in Cairns, Ulysses is by far the best service I have had. 1. Honest – I had them look at some termite damage in a fence after another pest control had quoted me a crazy amount of money to ‘treat’ the fence, to discover there was absolutely no activity by Ulysses and no need for a treatment. 😀 2. Professional – always on time and great customer service. 3. The treatment works! 10 months later the treatment is still working perfectly. 4. Not a big franchise. Family local business with a real care for what they do, and do it well.

      Mark Duncan

      Terry was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. He was professional and thorough and even asked me what else he could do to put my mind at ease. I also learnt a few things about the right bates to get, etc. All at a very reasonable price. Would recommend him to anyone.

      Dan Bywaters

      Terry arrived on time, quickly identified the ants and roaches that had been plaguing our house and applied an appropriate treatment. We noted excellent results from the pest treatment, within a matter of hours. Great service and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

      Astrid Murray

      Great service, very professional and reliable. We called Ulysses Pest Control to help us clear some frustratingly hard to get rid of German cockroaches – yuck! Nothing seemed to work. I only wish we had called them sooner as it would have saved a lot of time, money and frustration! The results were pretty much immediate and we feel we have our home back. I highly recommend Ulysses!
