Silverfish and firebrats are wingless, flat insects with two long, slender antennae on the front and three long slender “bristles” at the rear of a tapered, carrot-shaped body. They are 1/2 inch long when fully grown.

What we do to get rid of them:

There are many conducive conditions that can make control difficult such as full, leaky gutters, leaky roof, and cedar shake roof shingles. Control consists of regular treatment of the attic space and exterior (we recommend a quarterly basis) and occasional special measures on second floor in heavy infestations. Using the proper material to treat is crucial and we know the proper materials. It is essential that the attic be treated on each service. Many companies now prohibit their employees from going in the attic so they would not be able to effectively treat silverfish.
